Ok then look into the calculation of the [Scenario].[Scenario].[Budget Variance %]. There is a section back_color that sets directly value of a cell. Plug this Mdx into you Proclerity desktop and don't forget to check the grid properties/grid formating: use cube cell properties formating. You will se the value of the measure with red bgcolor.

SELECT NON EMPTY { [Scenario].[Scenario].&[1], [Scenario].[Scenario].&[2], [Scenario].[Scenario].&[3], [Scenario].[Scenario].[Budget Variance], [Scenario].[Scenario].[Budget Variance %] } ON COLUMNS ,
 
NON EMPTY { NONEMPTYCROSSJOIN( { [Account].[Account Type].&[], [Account].[Account Type].&[Assets], [Account].[Account Type].&[Balances], [Account].[Account Type].&[Expenditures], [Account].[Account Type].&[Flow], [Account].[Account Type].&[Liabilities], [Account].[Account Type].&[Revenue], [Account].[Account Type].&[Statistical] }, { [Account].[Account Number].[All Accounts].CHILDREN }, { [Measures].[Amount] }, { [Scenario].[Scenario].&[1], [Scenario].[Scenario].&[2], [Scenario].[Scenario].&[3], [Scenario].[Scenario].[Budget Variance], [Scenario].[Scenario].[Budget Variance %] }, 2 ) } ON ROWS  
 
FROM [Adventure Works] 
 
WHERE ( [Measures].[Amount] )
CELL PROPERTIES VALUE, FORMATTED_VALUE, CELL_ORDINAL, FORE_COLOR, BACK_COLOR, FONT_FLAGS
