Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

Have you tried recording a macro to get the format, and then modifying to suit your needs? Something like:

Code:
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet1").AutoFilter.Sort.SortFields.Clear
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet1").AutoFilter.Sort.SortFields.Add(Range( _
        "B1:B11"), xlSortOnCellColor, xlAscending, , xlSortNormal).SortOnValue.Color = _
        RGB(255, 0, 0)
    With ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet1").AutoFilter.Sort
        .Header = xlYes
        .MatchCase = False
        .Orientation = xlTopToBottom
        .SortMethod = xlPinYin
        .Apply
    End With

Will filter on red. You'd have to adjust the range and color(s) to suit your needs.

I am new to excel with using macros and autofilter.

My sheet tab is labelled as NMC

Cell C7 is labelled as Status and has Autofilter button.

Column C has different colors in cells starting from C8 as RED, GREEN, BLUE, and White(Blank) till C500.

I want to autofilter by clicking the autofilter button as Green, Red, Blue and White (Blank).
