Thank you for looking at my question,

I use the vba code below to grab data from an Excel workbook.

The number of rows will vary but there will always only ever be four columns.

For each row I would like to cell background colour in columns 1,2,3 and 4 to turn red if the cell value in cell 4 is greater than 6.

How can I achieve this please?
Sub Get_Data()
Dim wbk As Workbook
Dim destWbk As Workbook
        
    Set destWbk = ActiveWorkbook
    FileToOpen = "K:\Working Data\Loading.xls"
    
    Set wbk = Workbooks.Open(FileToOpen)
    
    wbk.Sheets(1).Range("A1:IV65536").Copy Destination:=destWbk.Sheets("TotalReq_vs_Bars").Range("A1")
    wbk.Close

End Sub

Do you mean you want columns A:D to turn red if the value in column D of that row is >6?

Perhaps like this (Excel 2003)?
With Sheets("TotalReq_vs_Bars").Range("A1").CurrentRegion
    .FormatConditions.Delete
    .FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:="=$D1>6"
    .FormatConditions(1).Interior.ColorIndex = 3
End With

Hello,

What version of Excel? Based on the .xls extension, I assume you're using 2003 or earlier. In that case something along the lines of

    destWbk.Range("D1").Select
    With destWbk.Columns("A:D")
       .FormatConditions.Delete
       .FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:="=$D1>6"
       .FormatConditions(1).Interior.ColorIndex = 3
    End With

    Range("A1:D1").Select ' Sel 4 Cols 1st Row
    Selection.FormatConditions.Add Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:="=$D1>6" ' Col 4 > 6
    Selection.FormatConditions(Selection.FormatConditions.Count).SetFirstPriority
    With Selection.FormatConditions(1).Interior
        .PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic
        .Color = 255 ' Red Bkgnd
        .TintAndShade = 0
    End With
    Selection.FormatConditions(1).StopIfTrue = False
    Selection.Copy
    Range("A2:D65536").Select
    Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteFormats, Operation:=xlNone, _
        SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False ' Copy Formats to other rows
    Application.CutCopyMode = False
