Formula not copying last row to new sheet

I did not create this code.  It is copying data from IO Staging to Inbound, but counting rows on Variances Tab.  It was not copying the last row of the IO Staging tab and thus not copying it to the Inbound tab.  

I changed this row to say +3 instead of +2 and it seems to work
    lRow = Sheets("Variances").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row + 3

Can someone tell me if that was what I needed to do and if so why.


    lRow = Sheets("Variances").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row + 3
    zrow = Sheets("Variances").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    Sheets("Inbound").Range("A6:A" & lRow).Value = "A"
    Sheets("Inbound").Range("C6:C" & lRow).Value = Sheets("IO Staging").Range("C3:C" & zrow).Value

It's strange that you're getting your row numbers from the Variances sheet rather than the IO Staging sheet you are copying from:  

lRow = Sheets("IO Staging").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row + 3
zrow = Sheets("IO Staging").Range("C" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
Sheets("Inbound").Range("A6:A" & lRow).Value = "A"
Sheets("Inbound").Range("C6:C" & lRow).Value = Sheets("IO Staging").Range("C3:C" & zrow).Value

You're copying a range that goes from c3 to zrow into a range that starts at c6. The +3 extends the destination range and makes  it fit. Without it, you're copying n rows into n-3 rows.
