I am trying to use variables in vba to copy a range and then paste it into "sheet2". Here is a simplified example, please tell me what I am doing wrong.

Sub Macro ()

Dim r1 As String
Dim r2 As String
r1 = Range("A1").address
r2 = Range("B2000").Address
[r1:r2].Copy Worksheets("Sheet2").[a1]
End Sub

I want to know how to use the two variables to copy cells A1:B2000 and copy them to sheet2. I think it is actually selecting cells "R1" through "R2". Can anone help me fix this?
