Open file dialog search does not show the correct files

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation

When i use "open file" in the menu of, for example Pages, and then type a word of my desired file name into the search dialog it does not always find the file. Searching in Finder works. And the file is where it is supposed to be.
Does it use different kind of searches? I have "reindexed" spotlight but no avail.
Of course i can look for the file manually and then start pages by double clicking the file...
Any ideas?
thanks wolf

I'm not sure how Pages treats this, but it's possible that from an Open File dialog it may only search either the current directory or the default documents folder. Not sure about this as I'm not a Pages' user.
