In a ProjectWise Project Is there a way in MicroStation that you can reference in all files within a ProjectWise Document Set? Note the Document Set contains only DGN files; but is using the locked to version function (may not be the current version).
because your question is about ProjectWise (more precisely, about MicroStation used in ProjectWise environment), not about plain MicroStation, I recommend to move your question to ProjectWise forum.
To move existing discussion to another forum, use More > Move tool, available under you original post.

Agree that it's a MicroStation question in a ProjectWise Environment; ideally there would be copy function to another forum. I would think any command or alternative solution will be more known to MicroStation than ProjectWise users (especially if the industry is moving towards a CDE platforms).
As you will understand a DOC set in PW is a container showing links to the actual files. It is bot an actual file. Therefore, it is not possible to search for the doc set from the reference dialog.
However, you can have the doc set open right click on it and open the folder to get the filename then copy its urn in the attach dialog search tool and then link the file.
Thanks Ian, I agree that your approach would work. However I have multiple files (say 30) and was after a more efficient approach. The Document Set for the container file already exists. As an alternative I thought about building up a saved search - however this has limitation also on multiple files (from my understanding).
Appreciate on comments on whether this more a PW post. Ideally you either reference or search multiple files (then reference in this search) from the document set - however I don't think either approach is possible; possibly a future idea. Any other suggestions?

You have to ask / discuss this issue in ProjectWise forum, not here.
MicroStation itself knows nothing about PW features like documents sets or whatever else, and PW integration "translate" all these advanced features into standard "attach this file from this folder" workflow.

Because from Ian's answer it looks like there is no such functionality available (and Ian is right about the problem with "links only" in the set), it leads to an idea of custom functionality. You may try to ask in ProjectWise Programming forum, whether anybody did not meet such requirement or even did not develop such tool.

I don't follow your reasoning. You ask a question about a ProjectWise Document Set and suggest that MicroStation users rather than ProjectWise users would be in a better position to answer that question.
That's like visiting a car/automobile reseller and asking: "I bet you know a lot about bicycles. How to I fix this one?"

Please expand an acronym when you first introduce it. What is CDE? When I search these Forums for CDE the only result is AssetWise CDE.
