I am going to create a workbook to do a comparison between two different workbooks so I do not have to open the other workbooks, and I was wondering, can I make it change the coloring of the cell and show the contents of the cell?

WB1 will always be the newer workbook, so changing the formula as such,
=IF([WB1.xls]Sheet1!A1<>[WB2.xls]Sheet1!A1,[WB1.xls]Sheet1!A1,"")

will show a changed object, but I plan on having it show the older object as well, and I would like to highlight the changed object.
Is there a way to make it highlight a cell within a formula instead of vbscript?
Does conditional formatting have the ability to tell which workbook the cell value was taken from?
