Adding additional criteria to VBA solution in Excel

Last Modified: 2020-03-01
I realized that I need an additional criteria added to the great solution I received yesterday on this forum. I've been trying to solve it myself but don't have the skillset yet to solve it.

Sample of spreadsheet
I have attached a sample spreadsheet that shows the results I am looking for once the additional criteria is added.

The additional criteria is:
If Column A = "AIP_ENR" or "AIP_AD" or AIP_GEN" then Expiry Issue = ""

The current solution's VBA code is as follows:

Function expiryIssue(rng As Range) As String
Dim dte1 As Range
Dim dte2 As Range
Dim status As String
Set dte1 = rng.Cells(1, 1)
Set dte2 = rng.Cells(1, 2)
status = rng.Cells(1, 3)
If status <> "Expired" And status <> "Cancelled" And status <> "Replaced" Then
' If there is no Proposed or Approved expiry date
    If dte2 = "" And dte1 = "" Then
        expiryIssue = "Missing expiry dates"
    'If there is no Approved Expiry date and the Proposed Expiry date is within 60 days of todays date
        If dte2 = "" Then
            If dte1 < Date + 60 Then expiryIssue = "Review proposed expiry date"
        'If the Approved Expiry date is older than today's date
            If dte1 = "" Then
                If dte2 < Date Then expiryIssue = "Issue"
                If dte2 < Date Then expiryIssue = "Issue"
            End If
        End If
    End If
End If
End Function
