Excel VBA to copy range from closed workbook to active workbook

Looking to use VBA to copy range columns A:W from a closed workbook in worksheet "Worksheet1" to my active workbook, worksheet "Worksheet1" range  columns A:W

The source workbook has a different name each time it is looked for, as it is renamed after the last update.

You may try something like this....
The code will prompt you to select the source file.

Sub CopyFromAnotherWorkbook()
Dim swb As Workbook, wb As Workbook
Dim sws As Worksheet, ws As Worksheet

Dim SelectedFile As String

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set swb = ThisWorkbook
Set sws = swb.Sheets("Sheet1")
sws.Range("A:W").ClearContents

With Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFilePicker)
   .Title = "Select A Folder!"
   .ButtonName = "Confirm"
   .Filters.Clear
   .Filters.Add "Select an Excel File to open", "*.xlsx"
   If .Show = -1 Then
      SelectedFile = .SelectedItems(1)
   Else
      MsgBox "You didn't select a file.", vbExclamation, "File Not Selected!"
      Exit Sub
   End If
End With
Workbooks.Open SelectedFile
Set wb = ActiveWorkbook
Set ws = wb.Sheets(1)
ws.Range("A:W").Copy sws.Range("A1")
wb.Close False
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
MsgBox "Data has been successfully copied.", vbInformation, "Done!"
End Sub
