I'm trying to cut an arch opening through a sweep with no success. Void Models not working.. They will cut wall behind the sweep, but not the sweep.

Help!

How are you creating the sweep? I believe the only way to get this done the way you want is the model in place (Architecture --> Component --> Model in Place). Then make your sweep (in plan view so the path can follow the building footprint), next you will make a void extrusion in elevation in th shape of the arch where you want it and use that to cut the sweep. Then finish the model in place command and voila.

I typically place wall sweeps in elevation. I'll try it in plan, I wasn't aware of that possibility.

This cannot be done using the wall sweep command. You need to create a model in place family following the steps I outlined. Sake a sweep and draw the path in plan then either draw the profile or apply a profile shape family.
