Just insert and run this Macro

Sub Test()
Dim tsk As Task
For Each tsk In ActiveProject.Tasks
    If Not tsk Is Nothing Then
        If tsk.PercentComplete = 100 Then
            SelectTaskField Row:=tsk.ID, _
                      RowRelative:=False, Column:="Name"
            'Font Bold:=True, Color:=pjRed
            Font32Ex CellColor:=&HF0D9C6
        End If
        If tsk.PercentComplete <> 100 Then
            SelectTaskField Row:=tsk.ID, _
                      RowRelative:=False, Column:="Name"
            'Font Bold:=True, Color:=pjRed
            Font32Ex CellColor:=&HFFFFFF
        End If
    End If
Next
End Sub

You can Set up a Shortcut to Run it..

Can also use

Font Bold:=True, Color:=pjGray

Instead of Font32Ex CellColor:=&HF0D9C6

Or Red as on the example that is commented out

You can then use the macro either as a BUTTON on a custom toolbar which you can run anytime you want, or set it on the OnOpen or OnClose or OnUpdate or OnSave events of the file, so that the formatting is down automatically...the sub may need some tweaking though...can you post a small sample of a project?
