Replace path "D:\Documents and Settings\jignesh.thar\My Documents\FINAL.xls" with C:\PROGRAM FILES\DATA1\FINAL.XLS

Assuming that the headers in both Working and Final are the same

Run this from workingcopy.xls

Sub CopyToFinal()

Dim rng As Range

    Set rng = Range("'[C:\PROGRAM FILES\DATA1\FINAL.XLS]Sheet1'!A1")

    Range("A1").CurrentRegion.Copy rng

End Sub
