    Hello,

    i would recommend to implement a derived key figure in you query with the query designer: actual cost - plan cost.

    Use the conditional formating based on the derived key figure being less than zero (or what suits your case).

    Use the apply to option of your conditional format with your actual cost as target..

    Kind Regards,
