Question
Hi Aidan,

I want to use a Conditional Formatting in Detailed_Summary tab, where 'Production Plan (Units) - Revised' cell data is more than 10% greater than the 'Production Plan (Units) - Current'. This should apply to all the PlantLine items and months.

Please note that data is dynamic. It might be more/less based on the MainPivot data.

Answer
If it is safe to assume that the layout of the data is constant with the CURRENT line being 3 lines earlier than the revised then this formula would give you what you need

=AND($C7="Production Plan (Units) - Revised",D7>(D4*1.1))

This was entered in D7 and then format painted to all other rows
