Excel 2003 conditional formatting

Hello experts, I need a hand with formula based conditional formatting. I need to colour the cells in two columns where there is a difference against a target value. This target value is held in one of the cells and is changed weekly.

I've attached a sample spreadsheet which hopefully illustrates my question

Thanks for any help or suggestions

I don't follow your logic. If the percentage is greater than target it should be green but if more then 10% greater than target it should be orange, and if more than 20% greater it should be red? But that does not match your applied formatting as far as I can see.

"more than 10%" rather than "more then". :)

Following your rules, the final result will not be like you posted on your file!

If value in Actual Number is greater than or equal to Target Number
If value in Actual Number is 10% or less than Target Number
If value in Actual Percentage is 20% or greater than Target Percentage - do you meant "Target Number"?

I think the line:

If value in Actual Percentage is greater than or equal to Target Percentage

should read:

If value in Actual Percentage is lees than or equal to Target Percentage

Here is an example of one way to achieve this, have a look in cells A1 and B1 for some formulas and compare them against the conditional formatting that is set up. I know this might not be exactly the result you were hoping for, but it might give you some guidance as to how to get what you want.
