I wonder whether that macro works as explained in the question

If it does then try changing

       Set rngSrc = wb1.Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A2")
       Set rngDst = wb2.Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A2")

       Set rngSrc = wb1.Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A2").resize(,6)
       Set rngDst = wb2.Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A2").resize(,6)

Ok ssaqibh

slight problem now the macro is copying the sixth cell value in wbk1 and pasting that into wkb2...as the merged cells in wkb2 are in rows of 6....

When the macro should be copying each cell value in rows a2:f until last ccell with value. ...into the merged cells corresponding range wkb2.

It would still be good to know what cells are merged.

If you did just want to repeat the code I previously posted then this might work.
Sub CopyToMergedCellsMultiCols()
Dim wb1 As Workbook
Dim wb2 As Workbook
Dim rngSrc As Range
Dim rngDst As Range
Dim col As Long

       Set wb1 = Workbooks("Book1")
       Set wb2 = Workbooks("Book2")

       For col = 1 To wb1.Cells(2, Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column

          Set rngSrc = wb1.Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(2,col)
          Set rngDst = wb2.Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(2,col)

          Do Until rngSrc.Value = ""
            rngDst.Value = rngSrc.Value
            Set rngSrc = rngSrc.Offset(1)
            Set rngDst = rngDst.Offset(1)

       Next col

End Sub
