Question Adjustment Layer & Layer Set

I have a file that has a two layer sets and a background layer. I would like to apply an adjustment layer to the entire "top" layer set, but not have it impact the "bottom" layer set or the background layer.

Is there a way to limit an adjustment layer to impact only the layers within a layer set, and not all layers below in the stack?

From the PS help file:

"if you choose a blending mode other than Pass Through for the layer set, none of the adjustment layers or layer blending modes inside the layer set will apply to layers outside the set."

Thanks! I guess I hadn't noticed that a layer set could have a blending mode -- I was just looking at the individual layers inside the set.

This is exactly what I was looking for.

Thanks again,
