remove data validation/drop downs when moving row to another sheet

Hi All,

i have this bit of code that moves a row of data if the user selects 'Yes'. it moves the row to a tab called 'Completed' and deletes the row from the original tab, called 'dataEntry'.
it works fine but what i'd like to do now is have all the data validation removed so that when 'completed' sheet is just data, no drop downs.

here is my code
 function runOnEdit2(event) {
  var ss = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet();
  var s = event.source.getActiveSheet();
  var r = event.source.getActiveRange();

  if(s.getName() == "dataEntry" && r.getColumn() == 9 && r.getValue() == "Yes") {
    var row = r.getRow();
    var numColumns = s.getLastColumn();
    var targetSheet = ss.getSheetByName("Completed");
    var target = targetSheet.getRange(targetSheet.getLastRow() + 1, 1); 
    s.getRange(row, 1, 1, numColumns).moveTo(target);
    
    //This puts the completion date into the last column of data currently col H
    targetSheet.getRange(targetSheet.getLastRow(),numColumns  + 0).setValue(new Date());
    //Calculates the turn around time in days for column I on the Completed sheet
    targetSheet.getRange(targetSheet.getLastRow(),numColumns  + 1).setFormula("=DATEDIF(R[0]C[-9],R[0]C[-1],\"D\")+1");
    s.deleteRow(row);
  }
}

Instead of using moveTo use copyTo to only copy/paste values.
s.getRange(row, 1, 1, numColumns).copyTo(target), {contentsOnly: true});

hiya, thanks for that. when i click save it says there is a missing ; on that line.  my code looks like this:
function runOnEdit2(event) {
  var ss = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet();
  var s = event.source.getActiveSheet();
  var r = event.source.getActiveRange();

  if(s.getName() == "dataEntry" && r.getColumn() == 9 && r.getValue() == "Yes") {
    var row = r.getRow();
    var numColumns = s.getLastColumn();
    var targetSheet = ss.getSheetByName("Completed");
    var target = targetSheet.getRange(targetSheet.getLastRow() + 1, 1); 
    s.getRange(row, 1, 1, numColumns).copyTo(target), {contentsOnly: true});
    
    //This puts the completion date into the last column of data currently col H
    targetSheet.getRange(targetSheet.getLastRow(),numColumns  + 0).setValue(new Date());
    //Calculates the turn around time in days for column I on the Completed sheet
    targetSheet.getRange(targetSheet.getLastRow(),numColumns  + 1).setFormula("=DATEDIF(R[0]C[-9],R[0]C[-1],\"D\")+1");
    s.deleteRow(row);
  }
}
