When you are in a Finder folder and you open the folder you want to search in which in this case looks like your Documents folder go to top right search area and type in the file you want which in this case is abc.doc.

As default your Mac will search your whole computer but if you want to just search in that folder there is a gray bar were it says Search:. You want to click on the "Documents" selection. You will see the "This Mac" circled in dark gray meaning that it's searching your whole computer. Click on the "Documents" selection or whatever the folder you want to search in is called. It will now filter your search in that folder only.
