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.

Also, your formula should be:
=IF(E20="NO", "Delete Flat Rate Below", IF(E20="YES", "Enter Flat Rate Below", ""))
