Simple Copy / Paste Formats & Values

I have scoured the internet, and can't find anything that I can decipher that is even close to what I need, although all of it seems to work for others.

This is what I have:
Sub App_Mig_Status()
Workbooks("Recieving.xlsm").Worksheets("Recieving_Data").Range("A2:AS2001").Value = Workbooks("Sending.xlsx").Worksheets("Sending_Data").Range("C9:AU2008").Value
End Sub

First let me explain that I am pulling from a "Report" that is generated by someone else, and that takes about 2 hours to run, so I am not wanting to re-invent that wheel.
The above code copies the values, but there is formatting in each of the fields that I need to be able to filter on.
I can manipulate this to do a straight copy, however something in their code breaks the auto filter option's I have setup, and the one's I am trying to setup by Cell Color. (I have that code also)

However I can't figure out how to manipulate this to do a copy / paste of Values & formulas so I can try and do the auto filter that I need to do.

Help - Please!

First of all, you have a spelling error that may be affecting your code :

Should be : RECEIVING

To receive assistance on the issues, you'll need to at least post your code. However, having the workbook to download
from a cloud site (, etc) is the best way to accomplish it.

@Toballou, what happens with the code below? Please note that I left the spelling mistake as is in case your sheet tab and Workbook name do also have the spelling mistake.

Sub App_Mig_Status()
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False


    With Workbooks("Recieving.xlsm").Worksheets("Recieving_Data").Range("A2")
        .PasteSpecial xlValues
        .PasteSpecial xlFormats
    End With

    With Application
        .CutCopyMode = False
        .ScreenUpdating = True
    End With
End Sub

@MARK858 This worked PERFECTLY!! Thank you for the simple code. This did exactly what I needed, and now I can move on to doing all the other things I need to do to this sheet. Again Thank you!

As to the typo, it was an error made in haste, due to needing to rename things and the fact that I suck at spelling.
