    conditional formatting gray out cells greater than a value

    I'm looking to gray out specific cells based on an adjacent cell value.

    see attached example, i'll explain below too.

    Column B3 = 6

    I have 2 groups of 24 columns G:AD & AF:BC
    each column has a # (1-24) in row 2

    so i'm looking to gray out the cells that are greater than the # in column B.

    B3 = 6

    would gray out cells M3:AD3 (#'s 7-24) & cells AL3:BC3 (#'s 7-24)

    see image below too. i manually grayed out the cell to what they should look like based on the value in column B

    hi there. i saw your previous question too and wanted to ask you to illustrate your desired answers. it got answered pretty quickly and i did not reply. you did it though in this eg by manually highlighting.

    select the range you want to apply to (say from G3:AD101)
    go to Home tab -> Conditional Formatting -> New Rule -> Use a formula to determine which cells to format -> Format values where this formula is true:
    =AND(G$2>$B3,$B3<>"")
    format a fill

    do the same for the 2nd group

    Thanks, if you have clicked on the * and added our rep.
