typo? here? in Excel?
For example 91546
When I search for employee number 915646 it can not be found.
If not a typo, see if you can select a range of cells which includes what you want to find and try again.
One other check I'd do, is use Data > Autofilter on the column and see if what you look for appears in the dropdown list. If it does not, it suggests some format might be affecting it. Perhaps the numbers aren't integers? But I don't think so, because I just entered 915646.00001 in a cell and it found 915646.
Edited - on the Find dialog, click the Options button. One of those 3 settings might be different than you expected.
