I received this code by doing a question search on EE for conditional formatting.
http://search.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Office_Suites/MS_Office/Excel/Q_21455262.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+4+condit+format+more+than
It works well in my test workbook, however when I applied it to my working workbook I received the
runtime error 13  Type Mismatch
The debugger stoped at:
Case ""
    Target.Interior.ColorIndex = xlNone
    Target.Font.ColorIndex = xlAutomatic

I am coping information in to my working model and there are no empty fields in my range.
Thanks

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

If Intersect(Target, [A15:B800]) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub     'Formatting only applies to cells A15:B800
For Each Cell In Intersect(Target, [A15:B800])
Select Case Cell.Value
Case ""
    Cell.Interior.ColorIndex = xlNone
    Cell.Font.ColorIndex = xlAutomatic
Case "GP"
     Cell.Font.ColorIndex = 5    'Black text
     Cell.Font.Bold = True
Case "SPX"
     Cell.Font.ColorIndex = 1    'Black text
     Cell.Font.Bold = True
Case "HP"
     Cell.Font.ColorIndex = 53    'Black text
     Cell.Font.Bold = True

No. But you can specify multiple strings:

Case "GP", "GX", "GA"

Sorry about that:

Case "GP"
     Cell.Font.ColorIndex = 5    'Black text
     Cell.EntireRow.Columns("B").Cells.ColorIndex = 5
     Cell.Font.Bold = True

You are the expert, but..
It worked when I added .Font after .Cells
Cell.EntireRow.Columns("B").Cells.Font.ColorIndex = 5

Thanks for the help.
