I'm creating a sales dashboard that uses Conditional Formatting. My columns range from E - P Jan through December. Row 2 = sales target and row 3 = Sales Result.

I'm trying to use Conditional Formatting formatting so that if cell e2 is greater than e3 the cell is highlighted green. My question is do I need to use a conditional formating rule for 12 cells for each month? Or is there a shortcut / function that can help?

If you select E2:P2 then apply the rule
Excel Formula:
=E2>E3
it will work for the entire range.
