    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

    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
