    compare 2 rows at a time and highlight differences

    I have a spreadsheet with multiple columns. For some of the columns I need to look at each set of 2 rows, and highlight the sets where the values are different. For example, this is what my column needs to look like:
    23000101
    23000101
    20090701
    20110701

    23000101
    23000101
    23000101
    23000101
    20090819
    20110819

    23000101
    23000101

    Is there any way to do conditional formatting using formulas to do this, or any other way?

    Re: compare 2 rows at a time and highlight differences

    I think the example I gave was bad. Here's a better example:
    20030626
    20030626
    20030729
    20030729
    19931207
    20010531

    20030618
    20061214


    I'm not comparing each row to a fixed value. I'm comparing row1 with row2, then row3 with row4, row5 with row6, etc. In this case row5 <> row6, and row7 <> row8, which is why they are in red.
