I've got a Pivot Table set up the reviews a set of Projects. I want to highlight a value that is larger than the value in the next column. I know I could just do a formula or an IF statement and hide that, but I want to have something clean and easy.

Here's a screenshot of part of my Pivot Table:
 PrjPivotExampleWhat I want to do is Highlight the value in the "Total at Billing" column if it is larger than the value in the "Rev Budget" column.

In this example Row 12 should be highlighted.

try this
Sub test()
Dim i As Integer
Dim j As Integer

i = Range("T65536").End(xlUp).Row
For j = 1 To i
If Cells(j, 20) > Cells(j, 21) And IsNumeric(Cells(j, 20)) = True Then
    Cells(j, 20).Select
    With Selection.Interior
        .Pattern = xlSolid
        .PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
        .Color = 65535
        .TintAndShade = 0
        .PatternTintAndShade = 0
    End With
Else
End If
Next j
End Sub

Is there any way to do it without a Macro?

you could use conditional formatting but it will take a while.

I've already got Conitional Formatting set up to highlight negative numbers, but instead of Highlight if less than $0 I want to highlight if less than the cell value to the left of the current number. This is a report that will be updated so I don't want any static or frozen references.

You could try to call the macro when the selection has change or pivot table update
Private Sub Worksheet_PivotTableUpdate(ByVal Target As PivotTable)
Call test
End Sub

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
Call test
End Sub
