Hello,

I have a spreadsheet where a user enters numbers into column G.  

I would like to use a VBA script that will make a dialogue box pop-up if a number entered into a cell in column G is less than the number directly above it.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Try this in the sheet module - right-click the sheet tab, View Code and paste this in:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)

If Target.Column <> 7 Then Exit Sub

If IsNumeric(Target.Value) And IsNumeric(Target.Offset(-1).Value) And Target.Value < Target.Offset(-1).Value Then
    MsgBox "Less than"
End If

End Sub
