I am having an issue with conditional formatting in Excel 2010. I am attempting to apply formatting for a "greater than" scenario. I am comparing two cells that are summations of other cells on the sheet. The formatting works for all cases unless the two values are equal. It is still applying the formatting for "greater than" even when the cells are equal. It is not a rounding issue. If I type in the same number in both cells the formatting works as intended. What am I missing?

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

Please ignore previous post. I discovered values out in the fourth decimal place causing the problem.
