Excel IF Statement, Conditional Formatting Failure

I hope this will be easy. I am making a mistake, or missing something.
The Conditional Formatting formula changes the output in cell $G$19, based on the value in cell E20.
The formula is:
=IF((E20="NO"),("Delete Flat Rate Below"),IF(E20="YES"),("Enter Flat Rate Below"), "")
Applies to: $G$19

Any assistance or insight would be appreciated.

why you have merged cells?  should it be merged?
Shaun KlineLead Software EngineerCommented:
Conditional formatting only changes formatting (borders, fill, font, etc.) not the contents of the cell. Just place your formula in the desired cell.
