MS Project Conditional Formatting


I just converted my task tracking from Excel to Project and found that CF is only available via VBS. I want to have a condition where 100% in the % Complete column would fill the cell with bright green. Would you help me explore making that happen. I so appreciate your help, in advance!

Thank you,

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Thank you, ProfessorJJ,

it makes lines of text green irrespective to whether % Completion is 100% or not. I am looking to see if I can alter what you've given me, though

Thank you,
