Code seems to have error....but I tried this

            TreeNodeCollection Nodes = tvewNetworkSource.Nodes;

            TreeNode[] Node = Nodes.Find(SectionID, true);

            Node[0].Collapse();

....and No work.

you would need to search recursively in each node's child
use this function

public TreeNode SearchTree(TreeNodeCollection nodes, string searchtext)
{
      foreach(TreeNode node in nodes)
      {
            if(node.Tag as string  == searchtext)
            {
                  return node;
            }
            SearchTree(node.Nodes, searchtext);
      }            
}

and call it like
TreeNode tn = SearchTree( MyTreeView.Nodes, MySearchString);
//do whatever with tn

I really appriciate ur effort dude...but I have searched the desired node using following code:

            TreeNode[] n = this.tvewNetworkSource.Nodes.Find(SectionID,false) ;

            if (n.Length >0 )
            {
               //Problem
              tvewNetworkSource.SelectedNode = tvewNetworkSource.Nodes[0];
            }

Now Im haveing problem in selecting the searched node. n in this case.

TreeNodeCollection.Find seems to be new thing in .Net 2.0, the code above works for earlier version too :D
2.0 documentation says that 'Find' return treenodes whose 'Name' property matches the specified key, while you need to match tags. one more :D

doesn't the fuction i wrote in my first response work for searching?
posting it again here-
public TreeNode SearchTree(TreeNodeCollection nodes, string searchtext)
{
     foreach(TreeNode node in nodes)
     {
          if(node.Tag as string  == searchtext)
          {
               return node;
          }
          SearchTree(node.Nodes, searchtext);
     }          
}

as for selection-
TreeNode tn = SearchTree( MyTreeView.Nodes, MySearchString);
if( tn != null)
{
      MytreeView.SelectedNode = tn;//to select
      tn.Expand();//to expand
}

i havn't tested this, but this should work.

solution was working only at root level
please use this one

private TreeNode SearchTree(TreeNodeCollection nodes, string searchtext)
        {
            TreeNode n_found_node = null;
            bool b_node_found = false;
            foreach (TreeNode node in nodes)
            {
                if (node.Tag.ToString() as string == searchtext)
                {
                    b_node_found = true;
                    n_found_node = node;
                }
                if (!b_node_found)
                {
                    n_found_node = SearchTree(node.Nodes, searchtext);
                }
            }
            return n_found_node;
        }
