To copy both values and formatting do something like this.

    Selection.Copy
    Range("A3").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteAllUsingSourceTheme, Operation:=xlNone _
        , SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False
    Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
        :=False, Transpose:=False

This is an example. You can change out the "Range" for "Cells", if you are looping through columns or rows, and use the same methods.
Public Sub TestThis()
    ' Have a specially formatted value in D5, and move it to F5
    Range("D5").Select
    Selection.Copy
    Range("F5").Select
    ActiveSheet.Paste
    Application.CutCopyMode = False

    ' If you need to clear the formatting in your source, do this.
    Range("D5").Clear
End Sub

    Range("H14").Select
    Selection.Copy
    Range("J14").Select
    ActiveSheet.Paste
application.cutcopymode=false

Considering you want to copy from H14 to J14

And in my example if you just want to copy the formatting do just the first of the two PasteSpecials.
