I've set my CF rule to look like the screen shot I have attached. I've been over it for what seems like 100x but it's just not working. Can someone please help?
Although conditional formatting should override manual formatting, sometime it hiccups. I'd try clearing the formatting from the 2 columns (see image below).
If your values have been copied from elsewhere or are being calculated via a formula, perhaps also test manually creating values to eliminate issues with the data.
Bear in mind too that your CF rule is applied to the whole row. If you are looking to match your screenshot, you will need to adjust the rule to apply to only the JOB COST TO DATE column.
Thanks for the response. I cleared everything out and made sure that I only had the CF applied to the JOB COST TO DATE and still nothing. Clearly, I am doing something wrong, I've tried this every different way I can think of, deleted it when it didn't work and tried something new. More than likely, user error.
No idea to be honest. Your CF looks OK, so I'm stumped.
Have you tried creating a new sheet and testing CF with 2 cells? You don't need to rename them, just set them to a Currency format and give it a go.
Another workaround could also be to create a PROJECT DELTA column to the right:
=[ADJUSTED PROJECT COST]1 - [JOB COST TO DATE]1
And then set up your CF based on this new column. If PROJECT DELTA is less than 0 then apply this format to the 'JOB COST TO DATE' column
Hope you get it sorted.
Hey Smart Heads, I have another question about our beloved topic of formulas. Background: I have a autogerated column with row created date.

We had an employee leave and we are unable to edit the fields directly in the smart sheet. They had some kind of system set up where their fields were being populated via a dynamic view. I can not longer access this view because the person in question left our org. Is there a way to get access to that view now their…
What I intended to do is super simple: bring two sheets into one Row Report and do a simple pie chart on the status field. -> Source Data: two sample sheets A&B have exactly same fields. and the status is a dropdown list with single value -> The roll up row report, only picked the status field from the two source sheets.…
