Total column changes colors when total equals sum of other columns

I have set up a column that will have invoice total. Then have other columns
that are the "parts" of the total. IE: total invoice \$100.00 (I type in
this total). Next columns 3 columns include the parts that equal the total
invoice. Say like \$50, then \$30, then \$20. I want the total (ie \$100.00) to
display in "red" until I enter the next 3 columns and then it will change to
"black font color" only if my totals in the 3 columns equals \$100.00

Alright, if I get what your saying this should work. Suppose you have your
total in Cell A10. Set the color to red yourself. Then follow these steps.

1) Select cell A10
2) Go to---- Format --- Conditional Formatting
3) Change the "Cell Value Is" to "Formula Is"
4) Type in this formula exaclty =A10=SUM(B1010)
5) Change the format to whatever color you want (Black in your case)
6) Press OK

Now if your totals in Cells B1010 equal 100, the font will change from red
to black. Let me know if this helps.
