Welcome to the Board!

Assuming you have a header in row 1, select the range A2:G100 (the last cell should be the bottom of your potential range, and the column should be the width you want to highlight). Click Conditional Formatting > New Rule > Use a formula > and enter:

=MOD(SUMPRODUCT(--($A$2:$A2<>$A$1:$A1)),2)=0

and choose your formatting.
