    Copying only values in VBA

    I just started learning vba, and I am trying to copy certain cells from one workbook onto a sheet in my master workbook where all records are saved. this is what i have so far:

     Sub Consolidate()'Author:     Jerry Beaucaire'
    'Date:       9/15/2009     (2007 compatible)  (updated 4/29/2011)
    'Summary:    Merge files in a specific folder into one master sheet (stacked)
    '            Moves imported files into another folder
    ' Edited/altered by me
    Dim fName As String, fPath As String, fPathDone As String
    Dim LR As Long, NR As Long
    Dim wbData As Workbook, wsMaster As Worksheet
        Application.ScreenUpdating = False  'speed up macro execution
        Application.EnableEvents = False    'turn off other macros for now
        Application.DisplayAlerts = False   'turn off system messages for now
        Set wsMaster = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Master")    'sheet report is built into
    With wsMaster
        If MsgBox("Clear the old data first?", vbYesNo) = vbYes Then
            NR = 2
            NR = .Range("A" & .Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row + 1    'appends data to existing data
        End If
    'Path and filename (edit this section to suit)
        fPath = "C:\Users\jchase.BRYCEWORLD.000\Desktop\Test\"            'remember final \ in this string"
        fPathDone = fPath & "Imported\"     'remember final \ in this string
        On Error Resume Next
            MkDir fPathDone                 'creates the completed folder if missing
        On Error GoTo 0
        fName = Dir(fPath & "New BM Analysis test.xlsm")        'listing of desired files, edit filter as desired
    'Import a sheet from found files
        Do While Len(fName) > 0
            If fName <> ThisWorkbook.Name Then              'don't reopen this file accidentally
                Set wbData = Workbooks.Open(fPath & fName)  'Open file
            'This is the section to customize, replace with your own action code as needed
                LR = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row  'Find last row
                wbData.ActiveSheet.Range("P14:S" & LR).Copy.Value  .Range("A" & NR)
                wbData.Close False                                'close file
                NR = .Range("A" & .Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row + 1  'Next row
                'Name fPath & fName As fPathDone & fName           'move file to IMPORTED folder
            End If
            fName = Dir                                       'ready next filename
    End With
    ErrorExit:    'Cleanup
        Application.DisplayAlerts = True         'turn system alerts back on
        Application.EnableEvents = True          'turn other macros back on
        Application.ScreenUpdating = True        'refreshes the screen
    End Sub
    I am trying to get values from P14-s14 down until there are no more values.Iam getting an error 424 on the line
    wbData.ActiveSheet.Range("P14:S" & LR).Copy.Value  .Range("A" & NR)
    Am i not correctly calling for the values?

    Copy the Range... PasteSpecial the Values
    Please take the time to read the Forum FAQ

    Hi. When you want to copy only values, use PasteSpecial method with xlPasteValues option

    wbData.ActiveSheet.Range("P14:S" & LR).Copy
    .Range("A" & NR).PasteSpecial xlPasteValues
    or directly assign the values to the target cells
    .Range("A" & NR).Value = wbData.ActiveSheet.Range("P14:S" & LR).Value

    Set rData = wbData.ActiveSheet.Range("P14:S" & LR)
    .Range("A" & NR).Resize(rData.Rows.Count, rData.Columns.Count).Value = rData.Value
