You don't need VBA for that, you can use Conditional Formatting.

Insert a spare column in column A and enter the following formula, starting at row 2 and copy down as required:

=IF(B2=B1,A1,IF(A1=1,0,1))

This will then number each set of rows with 1 or 0. You can then use the 1 or 0 as a check value for Conditional Formatting.

See attached.

Column A can then be hidden if required.

I used some SQL to add a formatting column to the data output, then conditional formatting.
