st:use of *OR* | in 'replace'

whenever I try to use an OR-statement in relation to the replace command I encounter an error.

E.g. - Variable Temp can take values of 40.5, 41.5 and 42.5 - Variable Dose_Group can take values from 1 -- 14

Then gen Include=0 replace Include=1 if Temp==42.5 | Dose_Group<3 returns: Dose_Group invalid name r(198) I've tried different combinations of parantheses in the expression (for some reason I can make an AND-statement work).

Can someone tell me the correct syntax, or is OR-statements just not allowed in replace?

Regards, Steffen
