VBA to copy certain columns from multiple workbooks with multiple worksheet based on criteria into master workbook

Hi everyone,

I would like to ask for help about the code I found and I tried to modify it but I'm not lucky to make it work.
I have a total of eight (8) workbooks with more than one (1) worksheets. What I'm trying to achieved is copy a certain column if the condition is met.

Here is the code:
VBA Code:
Sub copydata()
    Dim lastrow As Integer
    Dim i As Integer As Integer
    Dim erow As Integer
    Dim xlsDestination As Workbook  'Master Workbook
    Dim xlsSource As Workbook       'Source Workbook
    Dim xlsDestSheet As Worksheet   'Destination Sheet
    Dim xlsSourceSheet As Worksheet 'Source Sheet
    Dim RefNo, Rev, Desc, DateSub

    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    Set xlsDestination = ThisWorkbook
    Set xlsDestSheet = xlsDestination.Sheets("Master")
    Set xlsSource = Workbooks.Open("C:\Users\User\Desktop\Report\Source1.xlsx") 'I have lots of source workbooks
    Set xlsSourceSheet = xlsSource.Sheets("Sheet1") 'The problem here is source file composed of more than 1 sheet in every workbooks
    lastrow = xlsDestSheet.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row

    For i = 12 To lastrow 'starting row to copy in Source File
        If xlsSourceSheet.Cells(i, 13).Value = "C" And xlsSourceSheet.Cells(i, 17).Value = "LT" Then ' This the condition if condition is met
            'change the column numbers to the relevant number (from Source Workbook)
            RefNo = xlsSourceSheet.Cells(i, 2).Value
            Rev = xlsSourceSheet.Cells(i, 3).Value
            Desc = xlsSourceSheet.Cells(i, 5).Value
            DateSub = xlsSourceSheet.Cells(i, 10).Value

            erow = xlsDestSheet.Cells(xlsDestSheet.Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Row

            'change the column numbers to the relevant number (to Master Workbook)
            xlsDestSheet.Cells(erow, 4).Value = RefNo
            xlsDestSheet.Cells(erow, 5).Value = Rev
            xlsDestSheet.Cells(erow, 6).Value = Desc
            xlsDestSheet.Cells(erow, 7).Value = DateSub
        End If
    Next i
Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

Thank you in advance!
