    There is nothing in the privacy settings that is restricting this.

    I have a file named finance.xls

    I type in finance.xls in spotlight and it doesn't show the file
    I type in .xls and it shows all excel files other than the specified file
    I type in finance and it doesn't show

    I've tried renaming it, and it still doesn't show.

    Okay I just solved my own problem..

    If anyone is interested, make a copy of the original and the copy will show in spotlight.
