VBA Conditional Formatting not Doing What I Expected

Thank you for looking at my question,    

What I wanted was for the all the text in all rows where the value in cell(Qrownumber) is greater than the value in cell (Urownumber) - the code below doesn't quite do that (only some of the cells turn red and the q value in those rows isn't greater than the U value) - how should I do it please?


.Range("A3:U" & lngBOMRows).Select
With Range("A3:U" & lngBOMRows).FormatConditions.Add(Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:="=Q1>U1")
        .SetFirstPriority
          .Font.Color = vbRed
          .StopIfTrue = True
End With

Since you start in A3, your formula should refer to Q3 and U3.

Do u mean comparing col R (On Hand) and col U (Potential) instead? if yes, try this see if this is what you want?

Cells.FormatConditions.Delete
    
    With Range("A3:U" & lngBOMRows).FormatConditions.Add(Type:=xlExpression, Formula1:="=INDIRECT(""R"" & ROW())>INDIRECT(""U"" & ROW())")
        .SetFirstPriority
        .Font.Color = vbRed
        .StopIfTrue = True
