Conditional Formula with Symbol (Red, Green, Yellow) Dependent on Column Answers

Options

Hello,

keep getting unparseable when use formula to get color coded symbols for responses on 4 other cells.

Symbols Wanting to Use

Color Dependent on Answer of Other Cells in Row

Red=filed, yellow=submitted, green=approved

Example of formula:

=IF(([EHS Reviewer 1: Approved or Filed]@row=Approved,"green",[EHS Reviewer 1: Approved or Filed]@row=Filed,"red",[EHS Reviewer 1: Approved or Filed]@row=Submitted,"yellow"),IF([FSQR Reviewer 1: Approved or Filed]@row=Approved,"green",[FSQR Reviewer 1: Approved or Filed]@row=Filed,"Red",[FSQR Reviewer 1: Approved or Filed]@row=Submitted,"Yellow",

Any ideas on how to capture the colors for reviewers noted above? For one row there is only going to be one reviewers which could be any one of the four above.

Thank you,

M
