How do I carry conditional formatting through an entire section in EXCEL based on comparing values every two lines

Experts,

I have an EXCEL file that is comparing data from two files.  Each file has multiple columns K2 though QC5000.  example row2 has File A info.  Row 3 has File B info  Row 4 has File A and Row 5 has File B  etc.

I want to highlight any column where FILE A is not equal to FILE B  is there a way to do this in EXCEL 10 using conditional formatting?

Use this as conditional formula, in the range B2:BU9
=OR(AND($A2=$A3,B2<>B3),AND($A2=$A1,B2<>B1))
