I would like to get a particular cell to shade when the SUM of various cells is greater than 136. How to do this?

eg
D10 to shade when (D10+D11) is greater than 136

or
B10 to shade when SUM(D10:D11+M9:N11) is greater than 1089

I seem only to be able to cond-format individual cells.

What is =ROMAN(40) in Excel?
The Roman numeral for 40 is XL. Bill "MrExcel" Jelen's 40th book was called MrExcel XL.

Use the "formula is" option in conditional formatting, e.g. for your first example select D10 and use "formula is"

=SUM(D10:D11)>136

for the second select B10 and use

=SUM(D10:D11,M9:N11)>1089
