Perhaps Chris' question is more fundamental.

Chris: the exclamation point indicates that the file in the working copy
has been modified since the working copy was checked out or since the last
commit. To "get rid of" the exclamation point you will need to commit the
file. (If this indeed answers your question, I highly recommend taking the
time to read through the TortioseSVN documentation, which is excellent.)
