toc macro Exclude does nothing

We are running v3.4.9 of Confluence.

When I try to limit specific headings from appearing in the table of contents by using the exclude function of the toc macro, it never appears to have any impact on what is displayed. For example:


h1. Cassandra Demonstration Environment



h1. 1       Introduction

h2. 1.1      Executive Summary

Displays the following

Cassandra Demonstration Environment

I don't want the first bullet to appear, what am I doing wrong?

Hi, *.Cassandra means anything that ends with Cassandra. I believe you need Cassandra* or something similar? Please give that a try.

Thanks for the response Harry! You were correct about the expression I was using, in the wrong order, but also my error of including the period along with the equals sign. For some reason each of the examples I looked at appeared to show "exclude=." before the rest of the expression, which I left and/or put in place. Should have known better :~)
