File not found
Firefox can't find the file at http://myserver/cfide/mylocation/ABC.cfm.
Check the file name for capitalization or other typing errors.
Check to see if the file was moved, renamed or deleted.

I guess I should also note this location performs calcualtions and when working properly produces an excel spreadsheet. I only updated the calculations in the code, otherwise the code is identical, so I am just confused as to what might be triggering this error. I've done this with several other files and had no issues.
Sounds to me like IIS doesn't have sufficient permissions to see the files. This is a bit odd because I have a feeling that generally file perms are inherited from their directory, not set on the files themselves. However you should check whether the a/c that IIS is running as has permissions to see the files that aren't being served.
I am using CF8 on 2003 Windows Server.
I have a file, let's call it "ABC.cfm". Everything is working fine with this file.
I have updated the code in the file and renamed "ABC.cfm" to "ABCold.cfm". I think saved a new file called "ABC.cfm" and moved it the location where the original "ABC.cfm" file was and I get an error in the browsers (Firefox and IE) that basically says it can't find the file. If I rename "ABCold.cfm" back to "ABC.cfm" it finds the file.
Any idea why the browsers can not find the renamed file but can find the same file by the original name?
ColdFusion is known to sometimes masquerade its inability to process an error by responding with a page-not-found. To rule this out, perform the following test.
Comment out all the code on the page, excepting
Test result: <cfoutput>#now()#</cfoutput>
