Nested IF AND returning #VALUE!

I have what I thought was a simple formula I wanted to return a value based on the condition (TRUE or FALSE) of two cells. They are either both true, both false, one is false and the other true, or one is true and the other false.

IF(AND(ER18=TRUE,ET18=TRUE),ER22),IF(AND(ER18=FALS E,ET18=TRUE),ER23),IF(AND(ER18=TRUE,ET18=FALSE),ER 24),IF(AND(ER18=FALSE,ET18=FALSE),ER25)

This is giving me a result of "#VALUE!"
I do this so seldom, that I'm sure I've got it wrong but, it's 1AM and I'm not seeing it.

Any help, very very much appreciated!
Paul

a little shorter:
=INDEX(ER22:ER25,MATCH(--ER18&--ET18,{"11","01","10","00"},0))

I don't like nested IF formulas. Easily you lose track of things.
With the latest update of Excel 2016 there is the function IFS where you
can insert 127 arguments. What a nonsense.

127?!? Agreed. Too convoluted. I need to learn how to use the Index and Match functions. It appears much more straightforward... but I will have to do some studying. Right now I only know that it works, not how.
Many thanks, Paul

the INDEX describes a range and MATCH will find the row number. The
different result of --ER18&--ET18 are into the array in the MATCH
formula.

from the beginning on:
The formula for INDEX is
=INDEX(range, row, column)
So you only have one column column is not needed.
You have to find the row of your range. Therefore I converted your
boolean values with the double minus to numeric values.
--TRUE=1
--FALSE=0
Then I combined both cells with the ampersand
--TRUE&--TRUE="11"
--FALSE&--TRUE="01"
and so on.
Using the ampersand the result becomes text. That is why it is in quotes
into the array.
=MATCH(---ER18&--ET18,{"11","01","10","00"},0)
If you have in ER18 TRUE and in ET18 FALSE you get "10".
MATCH finds this value in third place of the array.
So your expected output is the third row of your range which is ER24.

Claus B.
