Hello - I am looking to conditionally format, in a pivot table, a cell based on whether it is more or less than the month before. Sounds simple enough, right? Wrong (at least for me)!


My dataset lists the item in rows, the months in columns, and the sum of quantity in the values.


I want to say, "if the qty of item xyz for February is greater than the qty of xyz for January, color that green." On the reverse side, I want to say "if the qty of item xyz for February is less than the qty of xyz for January, color that red."

ITEMJAN-17 QTYFEB 17 QTYMAR 17 QTYAPR 17 QTY
XYZ24743530
ABC50252015
