Weren't you given code in another one of your questions that does that?

An image isn't much use. You should try Conditional Formatting using a formula using the Max Function.

To create conditional formatting in your Pivot table:

  1. Select the values that you want the conditional formatting to apply to
  2. On the Ribbon, in the "Styles" section select "Conditional Formatting"
  3. Select "New Rule"
  4. Format Only Cells that Contain
  5. Cell Value
  6. Greater than or equal to
  7. =MAX(the range that you want to conditionally format)

This should then color only the cell that has the max value for the selected range in your pivot table.
