If have the following formula in a text box:

=IIf(DateAdd("yyyy",1,[LastApmnt])<Date() And (Not IsNull([ContactType]) And ([ContactType]<>"None" Or [ContactType]<>"Trials")),"EXPIRED","")

I am trying to check if a date from [LastApmnt] is more than a year old and if so put up EXPIRED only when [ContactType] is not null and not equal to None or Trials.  

I can get a formula working  when only checking for trials or none but not both.  What am I doing wrong?

i suggest this expression:

=IIf( DateAdd("yyyy",1,[LastApmnt])<Date(), IIf( IsNull([ContactType]), "", IIf( [ContactType]="None" OR [ContactType]="Trials", "", "EXPIRED" ) ) , "")
