Anyways, back to the point. The problem with updated files is that TM will look for new things that are indexed as new, and by indexed as new as in the Spotlight regards the file as updated since last backup. I don't really know if this would work, but you could give it a try.
1) Duplicate the file into the same folder with a different name
ex. filename.doc, and make a new file called filename_1.doc
2) Make sure that this file is in the same folder as the other file.
3) Back up
I think that would make Spotlight tell TM to backup the updated documents.Power Mac G5, Mac OS X (10.5.1), PowerMac G5 2.5 GHz, Powerbook G4 15", iMac G3 663MHz, iPods, original Macintosh
