Dear Experts:

I got a row of alphanumerical strings in Column A. Whenever the alphanumerical string changes to another the first occurrence is to be highlighted in some way. The best would be: cell fill red and cell font white.

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance. Regards, Andreas

I have attached a sample  file for your convenience.

Example:

O/243
O/243
O/243
S/374

G/192

K/334
L/419
S/342
F/224
F/224
T/343
T/343
etc.
