How to get Foreign Earned Income Exclusion

Turbotax indicates the section you identified is for income not reported elsewhere.  It seems to the area to report income earned overseas and also potentially have it excluded from income.  In my case the income is already reported in my W-2.  I have no additional income to report.  I want to avoid paying tax on that income to two different countries.  Are you confident you directed me to the appropriate section?
