Uncomment one of the commented rows.
The first one will copy only row 3.
The second one will copy row 3 down to the last available rows.

Sub copyrows()
Dim sws As Worksheet
Dim tws As Worksheet
Set sws = Sheets("sheet1")
Set tws = Sheets("sheet2")
'sws.Range("A3").EntireRow.Copy tws.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1)
'sws.Range("A3:A" & sws.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row).EntireRow.Copy tws.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1)
End Sub

Sorry forgot to mention one more thing....the copy and paste should be as a "value" that any links and formulas from the source doc will be disabled after the paste.  Appreciate if you could kindly amend to reflect this please
