Need some spreadsheet help.

I need the value ($'s) in Cell A to become RED if Cell B is greater than Cell C. Make sense?

So... If my actuals are greater than my budget, I want my remaining budget to be RED (and negative)

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi! That helped "almost!" :-)

I'm actually trying to post a pic, but I can't...here's the data:
-------
Initiative APPROVED BUDGET ACTUALS REMAINING BUDGET
GROUP 1
PROJECT A $2,250,294 $2,364,168 $113,874
PROJECT B $4,450,000 $3,481,418 $968,582
TOTALS $6,700,294 $5,845,586 $854,708
GROUP 2
PROJECT C $3,007 $3,007 $-
PROJECT D $84,393 $84,752 $359
PROJECT E $8,472 $8,531 $59
PROJECT F $50,005 $41,565 $8,440
PROJECT G $17,425 $15,130 $2,295
TOTALS $163,302 $152,985 $10,317
--------

See REMAINING BUDGET? I need those cells (depending on the data of APPROVED BUDGET AND ACTUALS) to go RED (or whatever color I choose)

So, for PROJECT A...my REMAINING BUDGET ($113,874) should go RED because my ACTUALS ($2,364,168) are higher than my APPROVED BUDGET ($$2,250,294).

The conditions I need are for a total of 3 cells. Make sense? :-/

OK, the logic is pretty easy. If your remaining budget is negative then color it red.



Take a look at the example.
