If I have numbers entered as following..
>50
<=100
Excel sees them as text...how can apply conditional formatting so that Excel will highlight the numbers that are greater than 250. Currently I'm thinking there isn't a straightforward way but want to see if I'm wrong :-)

Is there any role of comparative operators or you are concerned only with the number?
Why not post a small sample workbook with desired output mocked up manually?

You can replace >,<,= with nothing and convert value to number. Look at sample
