Hi

What VBA code would I use to filter the spreadsheet so that only rows where the first cell is yellow
are shown in my data range

Why don't you use Filter by color option?
The code in VBA:
    ActiveSheet.Range("$A$1:$A$6").AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:=RGB(255, 255, _
        0), Operator:=xlFilterFontColor

Open in new window

Assuming your header is in Row 1 (you have to have a header to use a filter), you would use the Operator xlFilterCellColor

   ActiveSheet.Range("A1:A40").AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:=RGB(255, 255, _
        0), Operator:=xlFilterCellColor
