2. In the Exclude Rules table, click the toolbar action . The New Exclude Rule window opens.
3. Provide a description for the rule.
4. Select the choices to associate:
a. Click the appropriate option tab.
b. Select an option from the table list.
c. Click the choices that you want to select in the right pane of the window.
d. If needed, select the next option to add additional choices.
5. Click OK to finish. The exclude rule is added to the Exclude Rules table.
