enhance code to only include text and not carry over formatting

is there a way to enhance the code below to only copy over "text"...and not formatting.

Sub CopyData(colFrom As String, colTo As String)
    ThisWorkbook.Activate
    ws.Range(colFrom & "6:" & colFrom & rwMax).Copy
    wb.Activate
    Range(colTo & 3).Select
    ActiveSheet.Paste
End Sub

Open in new window



Thanks
