I am running a macro that copies data in a form into two different archives. If one cell in the form contains specific data, it copies all of the information to the second archive. When I run the macro, it brings up the error message

Run-time error '424':

Object required

and highlights
.Range("A1").End(xlDown).Offset(1, 0).PasteSpecial xlPasteValues
Here is th entire code for the macro:

    Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    Sheets("Data Collector").Unprotect Password:="c"
    Sheets("Session Archive").Unprotect Password:="c"
    Sheets("Data Collector").Range("A2:AC2").Copy
    Sheets("Session Archive").Select
    Sheets("Session Archive").Range("A1").End(xlDown).Offset(1, 0).PasteSpecial xlPasteValues
    If Range("H32") = "DOM" Then
        Workbooks.Open Filename:="C:\book2.xls"
        With Sheets("DOM Award Tracking").Select
        .Range("A1").End(xlDown).Offset(1, 0).PasteSpecial xlPasteValues
        .CutCopyMode = False
        .Close True
        End With
    End If
    Application.CutCopyMode = False
    Sheets("Session Archive").Protect Password:="c", _
        DrawingObjects:=True, Contents:=True, Scenarios:=True, AllowSorting:=True
