Hi @RanHo ，

Please create the relationship between ACTUAL table and TARGET table:

Then create the following measures:

``DIFFERENCE = SUM(TARGET[TARGET GOALS]) - SUM(ACTUAL[ACTUAL GOALS])``
``Color = IF( [DIFFERENCE] > 0, "red", "green" )``

If the problem is still not resolved, please provide detailed error information or the expected result you expect. Let me know immediately, looking forward to your reply.

@RanHo , You can create two meausres

Target= sum(Table[TARGET GOALS])
Actual= sum(Table[ACTUAL])

Create a color measure and use that in conditional formatting using field value option

color = If([Target] >[Actual], "Red", "Green")
