Exclude multiple headings in table of contents

I have multiple headings I'd like to now show up in the table of contents. 

I can get it to not show one of them, but I don't know how to add multiple. 

I saw somewhere online to put this:   (|)

but should there be a space between the heading title and that symbol or after or not at all? 


For example I have two headings called "purpose" and "Jump to" - Purpose excluded is working but how do I add "jump to" to also be excluded? 

purpose(|)jump to   ?

Thanks :)

Hi @Adrian Hutchins 

No Space is best practice even though space works!!

and case sensitive!!

Hello @Adrian Hutchins  yes, in the macro settings, there is exclude headings. The docs say:

Filter headings to exclude according to specific criteria. You can use wildcard characters.

If the headings you want to exclude areOverviewandSummary, enterOverview|Summaryin this field.

Full documentation is here
