Questions about exclude-file

Is there anyway to keep rsync from reporting an error when attempting to
sync pagefile.sys (through a samba share)? It seems like any type of
exclusion of the file gets ignored, why is that? Anyway around it?

Also, of experimented with the exclude-from syntax quite a bit and
haven't figure out how you could just backup all .doc files on a file
system and exclude everything else.

Thanks - Max
