Exclude current row removes the current row from the selection of the frame.

In context for the exclude clause, current row really just means the current row—also for range and groups frames.

The exclude clause in window definitions—both, in over and window clauses—is defined in ISO/IEC 9075:2016-2 as part of optional feature T612, “Advanced OLAP operations”.
