CHMOD not changing mode

Hello all you knowledgable ones!

Using cygwin-b20.1 on NT4SP3.

I am trying to change the mode of a file to 777 using "chmod -v 777
Chmod reports:
"mode of output.dat changed to 0777 (rwxrwxrwx)"
But the file mode does not change, as evidenced by an ls -l.

Any tricks or simple solutions?
