Website not showing changes in page

First: I know very, very little about websites!  

I updated information on a page locally and ftp'd the updated page to my site.  It doesn't appear on my site when I view the site through a brower.  I've cleared my browser cache, check the site from multiple machines.  No joy.  If I double-click on the file on the WWW folder in my site it opens the updated page.  It's just whent I go to the actual site (www.nameofthesite.com) that I can't see the update.

Also, I updated the page using Microsoft Word as I don't have Dreamweaver, etc.  I've done this multiple times in past and I've never had a problem.

Thanks for your help!

i know this sounds silly, but can you make a change to the file on the server, then undo it? It soundsl like the file date/time dont realize the file has changed.
I have this problem periodically on my website as well!

Solution:  My webhost migrated my site to another server and the old FTP address/site was no longer used.  All though the files were still there.  I was provided with the updated FTP address and updated the page with no problem.

I'm going to award jerrypd the points as his suggest was valid and might solve someone elses problem.
