I think this may be what you are looking for:
Code:
[COLOR=#333333]=if(b2=b1,a1+1,1)[/COLOR]

If you want this result, You must start with 1 in cell A1 and in cell A2 put the formula:

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

<table border="1" cellspacing="0" style="font-family:Calibri,Arial; font-size:11pt; background-color:#ffffff; "> <colgroup><col style="font-weight:bold; width:30px; " /><col style="width:76.04px;" /><col style="width:76.04px;" /></colgroup><tr style="background-color:#cacaca; text-align:center; font-weight:bold; font-size:8pt; "><td > </td><td >A</td><td >B</td></tr><tr style="height:19px ;" ><td style="font-size:8pt; background-color:#cacaca; text-align:center; " >1</td><td style="text-align:right; ">1</td><td style="background-color:#fafafa; color:#333333; font-family:Verdana; font-size:9pt; text-align:right; ">123421</td></tr><tr style="height:19px ;" ><td style="font-size:8pt; background-color:#cacaca; text-align:center; " >2</td><td style="text-align:right; ">1</td><td style="background-color:#fafafa; color:#333333; font-family:Verdana; font-size:9pt; text-align:right; ">123421</td></tr><tr style="height:19px ;" ><td style="font-size:8pt; background-color:#cacaca; text-align:center; " >3</td><td style="text-align:right; ">2</td><td style="background-color:#fafafa; color:#333333; font-family:Verdana; font-size:9pt; text-align:right; ">222323</td></tr><tr style="height:19px ;" ><td style="font-size:8pt; background-color:#cacaca; text-align:center; " >4</td><td style="text-align:right; ">2</td><td style="background-color:#fafafa; color:#333333; font-family:Verdana; font-size:9pt; text-align:right; ">222323</td></tr><tr style="height:19px ;" ><td style="font-size:8pt; background-color:#cacaca; text-align:center; " >5</td><td style="text-align:right; ">2</td><td style="background-color:#fafafa; color:#333333; font-family:Verdana; font-size:9pt; text-align:right; ">222323</td></tr><tr style="height:19px ;" ><td style="font-size:8pt; background-color:#cacaca; text-align:center; " >6</td><td style="text-align:right; ">3</td><td style="background-color:#fafafa; color:#333333; font-family:Verdana; font-size:9pt; text-align:right; ">434344</td></tr><tr style="height:19px ;" ><td style="font-size:8pt; background-color:#cacaca; text-align:center; " >7</td><td style="text-align:right; ">3</td><td style="background-color:#fafafa; color:#333333; font-family:Verdana; font-size:9pt; text-align:right; ">434344</td></tr><tr style="height:19px ;" ><td style="font-size:8pt; background-color:#cacaca; text-align:center; " >8</td><td style="text-align:right; ">4</td><td style="background-color:#fafafa; color:#333333; font-family:Verdana; font-size:9pt; text-align:right; ">545443</td></tr></table>
