How to - Conditional Formatting - Percentage

Hi Everyone,


First time posting so go easy on me.


I am looking for a way to achieve the below result that Columns A+B+C+D=E


But if Column E is greater than 80% of Column F, it will be formatted Red.


Stored Red ApplesStored Blue ApplesShipped Red ApplesShipped Blue ApplesTotal ApplesLimit


Hope this makes sense.....

You can do conditional formatting based on the value of a field - and that can be a field that isn't even on the visual. 


bgcolor = if(A+B+C+D >= F*.8,"Red")

Thanks @lbendlin 


Could i trouble you to walk me through that.


For example when i try to set up the conditional formatting, it doesnt let me put in any formula so to speak.


@lbendlin - in a bit more relevance to my data set. Am i creating a new measure with something like the below examples?


bgcolor = if('ALL COLUMNS'[Totals Billed and Unbilled] >= ('ALL COLUMNS'[Overall Limit] *.8,"Red")


=IF(('All Columns'[Overall Limit])>('All Columns'[Totals Billed and Unbilled])*80%,"greater","less")
