Select the 2 columns.

Go to Home|Conditional Formatting

Select "use a formula to determine which cells to format"

Enter formula like:

=AND(ROW()>1,$C1<>$D1)

assuming column C is Id1 and column D is id3.

click Format and choose from Fill tab.

Click Ok and again to finish.

If you select the entire column and apply the conditional format... it will automatically apply to all 400 rows and more.  (you can verify in the Applies to field of the CF Manager)
