How to exclude couple of profiles from WF

Hi,
I just wanted to make sure to exclude certain profiles from the existing WF. Please let me know below syantax is correct.
NOT($Profile.Name ='Name') by including this can i exclude profiles right.

Thanks in Advance.

@Static Dev:

 That will work and you can also simplify it as :

$Profile.Name !='Name' or $Profile.Name <> 'Name'

In case, if you think there will be more profiles that needs to be exculeded, you can add the profile names that needs to be exculed to a custom label and you can use:

Not($Label.yourcustomlabelname.contains($Profile.Name))

where you can have all your profilenames to be exculded in the label. If the list grows, you can use two custom labels instead of one.

Hope it helps.

Thanks,
balaji

Sorry i was not clear. What i meant as it has couple of profiles instead of mentioning each individual of them.
I thght to use it like this NOT(CONTAINS($Profile.Name, "BB India") NOT(CONTAINS($Profile.Name, "BB Canada"). As all the profile names start with BB India xx , BB Canada xx.

Oh Yeah! you could do that! or to be more accurate you could use Begin with function as below:

NOT( BEGINS($Profile.Name, "BB India") || BEGINS($Profile.Name, "BB Canada") )
