Trouble with setting a variable with vastool

Hi I have this command that when put on the command line it returns the output the way I want it.

Code:
/opt/quest/bin/vastool list -a groups | grep testdev_li | grep dev | awk -F"[D:]" 'NF>2{print $2}' | cut -c2- | tr '\n' '|'

The output of this is

Code:
testdev_li2434|testdev_li4532|testdev_li2356|testdev_li2345

but when i try to set this to a variable, it gives me an error

Code:
tst=/opt/quest/bin/vastool list -a groups | grep abinitio_bi | grep developers | awk -F"[D:]" 'NF>2{print $2}' | cut -c2- | tr '\n' '|'

The error is this(name of the file is test.ksh)

Code:
test.ksh: line 3: list: not found

im kinda new to shell scripting so im not sure what to do

ZGREP(1)						      General Commands Manual							  ZGREP(1)

NAME
zgrep - search possibly compressed files for a regular expression SYNOPSIS
zgrep [ grep_options ] [ -e ] pattern filename... DESCRIPTION
Zgrep invokes grep on compressed or gzipped files. These grep options will cause zgrep to terminate with an error code: (-[drRzZ]|--di*|--exc*|--inc*|--rec*|--nu*). All other options specified are passed directly to grep. If no file is specified, then the standard input is decompressed if necessary and fed to grep. Otherwise the given files are uncompressed if necessary and fed to grep. If the GREP environment variable is set, zgrep uses it as the grep program to be invoked. EXIT CODE
2 - An option that is not supported was specified. AUTHOR
