Using Hebrew construct, I am trying to find nouns that end with a qamets-yod suffix where the suffix does not contain silluq or atnah.  I'm having problems with the silluq and atnah part.

 

I match the suffix with INFLECT =qamets-yod, and I can exclude either silluq or atnah using NOT CHAR in the same column, but if I add two CHAR elements to that column, it says "Only one character expression can be used with @.".

 

Is it possible to do this with a single construct?

I will answer my own question. The CHAR element allows multiple characters, even though it says "Enter single search character in Hebrew".  It gives another important instruction: "Use leading spaces to see overstrike characters".  Without the spaces, the silluq and atnah print on top of each other, and it looks like only one character was entered.

 

So, if I enter "space silluq space atnah", then it excludes words that contain either one.
