Why do I keep pasting to the first 5 columns, instead of finding the last empty row in column A?

Thanks in advance!

VBA Code:
Sub PostTools()


' TOOLSPost - post from OPEN ORDER TOOLS SS to Scheduled TOOLS SS
'
'
   ' Copy items to sheet.
   '
   '
   Application.ScreenUpdating = False
  
   Dim wbTarget            As Workbook 'workbook where the data is to be pasted SCHEDULED:TOOLS
   Dim wbThis              As Workbook 'workbook from where the data is to copied Open Order"Tools
   Dim strName             As String   'name of the source sheet/ target workbook
   Dim filelink            As String   ' name of workbook
   Dim targetFile As String
  
' ----------------- Find last row
    Dim DstRng As Range
    Dim DstWks As Worksheet
    Dim LastRow As Long
    Dim N As Long, r As Long
    Dim SrcRng As Range
    Dim SrcWks As Worksheet
' ------------------ End find last row

   'set to the current active workbook (the source book - Open Order)
   Set wbThis = ActiveWorkbook

   'unhide TOOLS sheet in the Open Order workbook and select it
    Sheets("TOOLS").Visible = True
    Sheets("TOOLS").Select
   
   'get the active sheetname of the Open Order workbook
   strName = ActiveSheet.Name
   

    ' Activate the Scheduled Workbook and select the Tools worksheet
    Workbooks("SCHEDULED.xlsm").Activate
    Set wbTarget = ActiveWorkbook
    Sheets("TOOLS").Select

 
   'activate the Open Order source book
   wbThis.Activate
   
   'clear any thing on clipboard to maximize available memory
   Application.CutCopyMode = False
   
  
  ' copy the range from source book
    wbThis.Sheets("TOOLS").Range("A5:Z5").Copy
  
  

' Assign the Worksheets
        Set SrcWks = wbThis.Sheets("TOOLS")
        Set DstWks = wbTarget.Sheets("TOOLS")
       
' Get all cells in the Source Range starting with row 5
        Set SrcRng = SrcWks.Range("A5:Z5")
        LastRow = SrcWks.Cells(Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp).Row
        If LastRow < SrcRng.Row Then Exit Sub Else Set SrcRng = SrcRng.Resize(LastRow - SrcRng.Row + 1, 26)
       
       
' Find the next empty row in the Destination Range starting at row 3
       
        ' Set DstRng = DstWks.Range("A3:E3")
        Set DstRng = DstWks.Range("A3:A3")
        LastRow = DstWks.Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
        Set DstRng = IIf(LastRow < DstRng.Row, DstRng, DstRng.Offset(LastRow - DstRng.Row + 1, 0))
       
          ' Copy the Source cells to the next empty Destination row if the Source Cell in "A" is not empty
         
            For r = 1 To SrcRng.Rows.Count
                If SrcRng.Cells(r, "A") <> "" Then
                    DstRng.Offset(N, 0).Resize(, 5).Value = SrcRng.Rows(r).Value
                  
                   N = N + 1
                End If
            Next r
       
      
      
      
   'clear any thing on clipboard to maximize available memory
   Application.CutCopyMode = False
   
   'save the target book
   wbTarget.Save

   'activate the source book again
   wbThis.Activate

    'hide TOOLS sheet and select order sheet
    Sheets("TOOLS").Visible = False
    Sheets("ORDER").Select
   


Application.CutCopyMode = False
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Range("A1").Select

wbThis.Activate
ActiveSheet.Unprotect
Range("F30").Select
    With Selection.Font
        .Name = "Trebuchet MS"
        .FontStyle = "Bold"
        .Size = 10
        .Strikethrough = False
        .Superscript = False
        .Subscript = False

        False

If I toggle this 5 value to 1, it will paste into column A of the target workbook, but not the additional columns from the source range

Code:
                    DstRng.Offset(N, 0).Resize(, 5).Value = SrcRng.Rows(r).Value

I don't think this matters, but each column is rows of Index/matches from a part no table. I just want to recap into a single column for a daily report .

Thanks for your help!
