Conditional Suppression Formula

How can I write a conditional suppression formula to suppress the repeated word "Color"? I can't use the suppress duplicate feature for this field since we use it for other things that must be repeated. I have the Test#200 suppressing because that one has to be suppressed all the time. In some cases Test#177 has to show the word "Color". In this case, there is a Test #116 present and when this test is present along with #177 and #200 the word "Color" field = {LabMethods_ReportedName} should only show for Test ID#116 and suppress for #200 and #177. I tried to do a conditional suppression on the Duplicate Suppression but it didn't work for me. Maybe I did that incorrectly.
