I found something on this...

'greater than' is appropriate when describing numbers alone
'more than' is used when describing no. of objects

I know the idiom that deals with both... kind of common sense though... but some don't know...

Greater than is always used with % SCs.

Ex: There are a greater percentage of MBAs active in the market place during a bull economy.
