I'm trying to nest the following IF statements. In order to have a different word returned according to what word is in the other cell.

=(IF((D2 = "Your Spouse / Partner"), "my partner", “x”)), (IF((D2 = "Your Friend"), "my friend”, "x"))

It's not working but individually the formulas do work.

Removing the extra parenthesis and putting the second IF as the third argument of the first:

=IF(D2 = "Your Spouse / Partner", "my partner", IF(D2 = "Your Friend", "my friend”, "x"))
