Excel conditional formatting for one cell

In Excel, I have a cell with text C16
I want to apply conditional formatting: if cell G16 contains a value greater than or equal to 2, color the text in C16 red

Thanks for your help!

I wear a lot of hats...

"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.

Understood, I just don't seem to be able to create a formula that works :)

Select c16, then click on conditional formatting, select the bottom "by formula" option, use a formula of

=$G$16>=2

and then select the formatting you want applied below that.  Save it.

You need to  select C16
go to Contional formatting
use "Use a formula to determine which cells to format"
then = $G$16> 2
go to format and pick the colour red
