Perfect

In a case where URL is like this

http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=10708&topic=13301

http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=118708&from=6560&rd=1

1st and last are same but it did not color even though the URL's in "F" are same

Does it check column "H" only the ones thats next to it?

Yes it does right now but

if Row 1"F": and Row 100 "F" is same and "H" is same in both cases does it color?

or does the script check for the adjacent ones only?

well !!! this is why I sort the workbook first to have them following each others. You need to tell me the sort order I sort by Col F then Col B it seems your sorting is diffrent as you have Row 1 then row 100 They need to follow. What is the best sorting ?

Mind you if there is not a better way of sorting then I can change the code accordingly.
