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
...
replace Include=1 if Temp==42.5 | Dose_Group<3
returns:
Dose_Group invalid name
r(198)

Are you absolutely certain that you have a variable with the name
Dose_Group (with uppercase and lowercase characters as shown)? If not,
it explains everything. Try, e.g.,
    summarize Dose_Group
