You need conditional formatting.

Select H3, go to Home|Conditional Formatting|New Rule

Then "Use a formula to determine which cells to format"

enter formula =AND($G3="Received",$F3="Yes")

click format and choose Green from the Fill tab.

Click Ok,

Then click New Rule, and repeat above with

=AND($G3="Received",$F3="No") and Format with Red from Fill tab.
