Excel Conditional Formatting Issue

I am trying to utilize conditional formatting logic on additional spreadsheets/tabs and for an unknown reason I cannot get it to function correctly on other spreadsheets and/or tabs.  

The new tab I added data to is:  Testing

The conditional formatting rule that is working is on tab:  Q_2871141  (I received this logic from Fanpages a couple weeks ago)

I have copied the exact formula to an additional tab and to other spreadsheets and cannot determine why it won't work as it does on the 1st tab.  Any ideas are welcome.

My tab - "Testing"
Your original tab - "Q_2871141"

The goal of the formula is to compare rows with the same value in column B and highlight the differences as it does on the 1st tab.

Any ideas are welcome.

i attached the spreadsheet to my earlier comment.  Tab 1 contains the highlighting solution via conditional formatting that is working correctly.  It is intended to compare 2 or more records where column B contains the same value and highlight the differences that exist in the associated columns.

Tab 1 - conditional formatting is working
Tab 2 - conditional formatting is not working

Thanks,

File attached again just in case.

Thanks!  I had figured out that the additional trailing spaces were causing the issue and now run a vb script to remove them all from the spreadsheet, however your "trim" conditional formatting solution would work also.
