Hello guys, I need to use will_paginate and I have a silly issue with "conditions"

I need to have the SQL code like below (with dynamic values on NOT IN condition):

Code SQL:
SELECT * FROM items WHERE (id NOT IN (0,1))  ORDER BY name LIMIT 0, 3

so, having the string with the value to exclude on 'hidden_list'


Code Ruby:
   @item_list = Item.paginate  :per_page => 3, :page => params[:page], :conditions => ['id NOT IN ?', "(#{hidden_list})"  ],:order => "name"

but this generates the SQL code below

Code SQL:
SELECT * FROM items WHERE (id NOT IN '(0,1)')  ORDER BY name LIMIT 0, 3

and with the quotes it doesn't work.

What have I to change in order to delete the quotes ???


THANK YOU and HAVE A NICE DAY!
