With the limited info you've given, it's hard to say what could be wrong.

My guess is you've recently upgraded and aren't aware that Adobe, in their infinit wisdom (or just to make changes for change's sake) split the Find & Replace Tool into two separate tools using two different keystrokes...

Cmnd/Ctrl + F is now for Find in Document and opens at the bottom of a page, allowing searches in that page only
Cmnd/Ctrl+ Shift + F is for Find in Files, which opens the familiar dialogue window and allows you to search a page, multiple pages, or the entire site.

If the above don't pertain to what you have happening, we'll need a lot more info to point you in the right direction.

What are you searching, what options are you selecting, OS, version, etc, etc

What I found was kinda by accident. 
I changed the search path then tried again. 
The path was completely random so failed. 
I then tried again with the correct, but this time I worked perfectly. 
I guess DW has a bug. 
Thanks all.

Sounds like pilot error, not a Dreamweaver bug. 

But glad you got it sorted.
