    How about conditional formatting?

    First, I would add a new, hidden column to display the count of unique values "so far" going down the list.

    So, if I put the data in B1, then in A1 I would have:

    Then copy down to the end.

    The numbers will increase with every new unique value it finds in the list as the formula is copied downward.

    You can then create a conditional format formula based on this info.

    1. Select B1:E44
    2. Conditional Formatting -> New Rule...
    3. Use a formula to determine which cells to format
    4. Use
    5. Apply a light blue
    6. OK/Apply
    7. Add new rule
    8. Use a formula to determine...
    9. Use
    10. Apply a darker blue
    11. Hide column A

    If you can live without the borders, it will work pretty well for you and you won't have to run a macro every time. I hope this helps.

    Attached is an example macro auto format.xlsx
