Extremely easy question.

I am calculating ratings thru VB6.  I opened an excel worksheet, and as I am filling in the information, if a rating is higher than a target I want to fill that cells backcolor green, if lower, I want it to be red.  

I have been fighting this for a bit, and don't have the patience to look any longer.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Therefore, even though I know it is easy, I am giving 125 points instead of 50.

TIA,
DMM

Another option; Excel supports conditional formating.  If the target is fixed you can just set this for the whole column and let Excel do the grunt work.  The version of Excel I'm using (2002) has Conditional Formating listed under the Format menu.  If you've got an existing workbook just set it there and forget it.  If you're creating the workbook on the fly lemme know and I can lookup the appropriate object (or just use Erick37's suggestion, above)
