Conditional Formatting Question

I've got the following formula:

Code:
= G3 < H3

Works fine but I need to do a similar conditional formatting formula for several other rows and the reference rows will be different each time. For example, K3 < L3 as the next one.

Is there a way I can go all the columns I need in a single Conditional Formatting statement or do I need to create a new one for each Column?

I believe I could Format Painter to make it simpler but when the rule comes out FALSE it is changing the background color of the cell to white which creates work anyhow.

You can do the same by following the below steps.

1)Select the range of cells ON WHICH YOU WANT YOUR FORMATTING
2) go to, Conditional Formatting, Manage Rules, Click on New Rule
3) Select the rule type as "Use a formula to determine which cell to format"
4) Enter the formula = K3<L3 ( or whatever calculations you want, just make sure that there is no $ sign in the formula)
5) select the formatting (color and all)
6) click okay, Then change the cell range under applies to as required.
