I do a Financial Spreadsheet for my boss. Lets say A1 is our revenue. B1 is staff cost. C1 is a percentage of cost to revenue. D1 is the difference of C1 to our Goal of 22.5%

Is there a way C1 can turn Red if the Percentage exceeds our Goal of 22.5?
Is there a way D1 can be Red if the difference is over our goal

Example...C1 will be 22.00% (that stays black) D1 would be .5% (we are .5 ahead of target. It stays Black)
But if C1 is 23.00% (we exceeded our goal and I'd like this to be Red) and the D1 would be -.5% (and I want that Red)

You can just use Conditional Formatting on cells C1 and D1:

Conditional Formatting formula on cell C1:
Code:
=C1>22.5%
Conditional Formatting formula on cell D1:
Code:
=D1<0
and choose your red formatting options.
