You have your answer but in case you're not aware when you want to find out how to do something in Excel you can record and then copy a macro. I just recoreded this one.


    Selection.Copy
    Range("C8").Select
    Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
        :=False, Transpose:=False

Open in new window

Yes, that's a great tool, but the problem in this case is that it will produce VBA code to accomplish the task, and that is not the same as a standalone VBS script.  Some of the VBA constructs and operators are not available in VBS.  That's why we have to use a different approach here.
