  1. Open a program.
  2. Select Tools > Personalize > Conditional Styles.
  3. Click New.

    Note: When working with Gantt chart data, set the value of the Target Field to Gantt Chart.
  5. From the Select condition type list, select either Numeric or Text.

    Operator for comparison

    For text and numeric data, you can select the standard comparison operators, such as equal to (=), greater than (>), greater than or equal to (>=).

    For text comparisons, you can select Contains, Starts with, and Ends with.

    Field or Specific Value
    Select Field if you are comparing the target field to another field. In the next box, select the field to compare to the target.

    Select Specific Value if you are comparing the target field to a value. In the next box, specify the value to compare to the target.
