Are you sure you need IIf?

Wouldn't the WHERE criteria be more like this?

Like "Both*" Or Like "Yes*" Or Like "No*"

How about a criteria that looks like:

IIF([Fee_Charged] IN ("Both", "Yes", "No"), "Yes", "No")

Active Protection takes the fight to cryptojacking

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

Ok, so this field is free text entry.  Any chance the users would simply type "Y" or "N"?

Free text entry are hard to set defined criteria for, but I would generally create a small function for this.  
1. I'm still not sure why you would want to return a "Yes" if the value is like "No*".
2. I'm also a bit confused, you start out indicating this is in a where clause for the [Fee Charged].  So, are you interested in adding a computed column to your query, or simply filtering on the [Fee Charged] field?

Each of the Iifs in your original expression will return a string and the overall result will be a type mismatch error.
