I am trying to get the symbol color to change when status in another cell changes and this formula isn't working.

=IF([Referral Status]@row = "Completed", "Green", =IF([Referral Status]@row="In Progress", "Blue", =IF([Referral Status]@row="On Hold", "Yellow", =IF([Referral Status]@row="Complete", "Red",))))

    Sorry I just copy and pasted your formula with one change. I see other issues with the formula. here is the corrected one.

    =IF([Referral Status]@row = "Completed", "Green", IF([Referral Status]@row="In Progress", "Blue", IF([Referral Status]@row="On Hold", "Yellow", IF([Referral Status]@row="Complete", "Red"))))
