At the bottom right of the Find window is an Options button.

Click on that and more settings will show. One of the dropdowns gives options for looking in Values or Formulas.

Try with both of those options.

If you have an area of cells selected when using Find, the search will only look in the selected cells. If you want to search the whole sheet ensure only one cell is selected.
