Conditional Formatting #56

Here is my request.  I have a form with a drop down menu 
of 4 items.  I am trying to write a formula (not code) for 
the following action:

=IIF[Classification]="Protected B", [Name]= (Colour of 
font will be white).  I don't seem to be able to make it 
work.  I am always missing something.  

What I really want is that some field would look like 
empty if the classification is Protected B.

Can anyone help me on that formula^

Thanks a bunch

Possibly conditional format
I have an Excel 2000 spreadsheet with Column G having random numbers from 1-20.

Conditional Calculation
The conditional statement I'm working with is: =IF(AND(A3=A2,B3=B2), 'Au'!E1,'Au'!E2) Here's the problem, I want to fill the column with this conditional statement but if I do that it will automatically convert E1 to E2 then E3 ect like it was filling a series. So instead of getting 5 rows with E2 then swithcing to E3 for 6 rows, I get E1, E2, E3. I want the value to be E1 until AND(A3=A2,B3=B2)is false and then I want to go to the next value (E3). Again, filling E3 in until AND(Ax=Ax,Bx=Bx) is false and then switching to E4 ect. Is there a way to write...

Formatting Question #2
Hi, new to the board, glad to be here. I'm a real estate broker and I'm basically setting up a commission calculator and was wondering if there's any way to change the number category for a particular cell based on an "if" function. In other words, if A6 equals "rental (Q6)" then the category of C6 changes to "currency". If A6 equals "sale (R6)" then the category of C6 changes to "percentage". Is there any type of advanced conditional formatter? Do I have to use VB? I don't know if that makes sense or not, hopefully it d...
