I'm looking at this and I'm thinking this is a shorthand way of coding an IF statement. But what does it mean? I was under the impression the "|" character is saying that both of the values have to equal 9, but the exclamation point is baffling me. What's the bottom line?

If $st['StatementRollUp'] contains a falsy value, or $st['templateid'] contains 9, the if statement will evaluate TRUE.
