Limit Atmosphere to One Light?

I have a scene with a spot light and atmosphere behind some trees. I also have a quad light used as a fill to give more definition to the main object in the scene. However, the atmosphere volume is also emanating from the quad light, which I do not want. Is there a way to limit the atmosphere volume to one selected light only?

Thanks.

What about setting the Volume contribution to 0 on the Main tab of the quad light?

Thanks! That was so obvious, I can't believe I didn't think of it.

Hi Peter, it may seem stupid or obvious but I cant find the Volume Contribution option in the main tab! Would you be kind enough to give me directions?

@Samir Riman

It is in the Attribute editor of every light, under the Arnold section, open the visibility tab. It is the 5th parameter.
