I have Book1 workbook with some dataset inside (it can be any records amount dataset), but always starts from cell A1
I need to copy the content of the Book1, which is located in Sheet1 into my other workbook Book2, Sheet1 using macro or vba - by pressing any short key (when macro will be executed)

I was trying to use the following code (advice from another site + research), but having an error - Microsoft Visual Basic for Application, 400

Please, help...

VBA Code:
Option Explicit

Sub OpenWorkbook()

    Dim swb As Workbook
    Set swb = Workbooks.Open("E:\Projects\AAA\Book1.xlsx")
    Dim sws As Worksheet: Set sws = swb.Worksheets("Sheet1")
    Dim srg As Range: Set srg = sws.Range("All Data")

    Dim dwb As Workbook
    Set dwb = Workbooks.Open("E:\Projects\AAA\Book2.xlsm")
    Dim dws As Worksheet: Set dws = dwb.Worksheets("Sheet1")
    Dim dCell As Range: Set dCell = dws.Range("A1")

    srg.Copy dCell
 

    swb.Close SaveChanges:=False
    dwb.Save

End Sub

The code only works when opening file and after that not work. If you wantto see modification do after changing at book1 you have two option.
1. Add 2nd code at that post to Book2
Or
2. Add same code as code1 to book1 again but first line should be
Before_Close Not Open
thank you; clearcontents line resolved my problem!
