Grep command

I want to exclude lines that contain (code 24) I have looked at the --exclude but had no joy

The --exclude option means to exclude FILES whose name matches a PATTERN from a recursive search. You should use -v instead and escape the parentheses, as in
Code:
grep -v "\(code 24\)"
See the difference between --exclude and -v in man grep.

I went for
grep rsync errors.log | grep -v "(code 24)

Seems to do the trick
