Should this CAML be working. (I tried it with u2u and it does not display the URL column.) I get this error. {System.ApplicationException} = {"One or more field types are not installed properly. Go to the list settings page to delete these fields."}

     <FieldRef Name='URL' />
     <Value Type='URL'>/path/HR Policy.docx</Value>

The Following code is working after Sébastien Levert suggestion.

/path/HR Policy.docx

There are some issues with the operator and the URL fields. Can you try the Contains, it worked for me in the past!

Thanks sebastien. Worked at first attempt. Thanks a lot. – user2492 Mar 14 '11 at 17:20
This is because the URL field type stores the display text of the link as well as the link itself. – James Love Mar 14 '11 at 19:00
