Sharing data between two spreadsheets

How to get data from one Rows spreadsheet into another


Using the Rows API now is easy to share data between two different Rows spreadsheets.

With this document, we want to outline how you can do this. Please, check below how you can do that.

To do this, we will be using two different spreadsheets:

  • Original Data: this spreadsheet contains the original data. It contains a few rows with the videos we have online on our Youtube channel (btw, if you don’t follow the channel, you can do it here).
  • Data from other Rows spreadsheet: we will be using this spreadsheet to get the data from the Original Data spreadsheet.

To sync the data between one spreadsheet and the other, we will use our Rows API and the Get Values endpoint.

Once we will use the Rows API, to complete the tutorial you’ll need a Rows API Key. You can follow this link to learn how to create it.

Building the Get Values endpoint

From the documentation about the Get values endpoint, we can check that the pattern to be used is the following:


To complete the endpoint URL we need the following information:

  • spreadsheet_id: 5TOCNcljfqj693yDQfkhHI
  • tables_id: 70b8cfdc-5b10-4b43-986f-6f36a46407a1
  • range: A1:F

With the information above, the URL to be used is the following:


Now that we have the endpoint to call, we will move on and create a data table.

Create data table

To create a new data table you need to follow the next steps:

  1. Click on the Actions button on the toolbar and we will select Connect to a custom API then select the GET operation.
  2. Enter the Action URL with the previous URL we built.
  3. Toggle on the Set headers and fill it out with your API Key with the following schema:
1{"authorization": "Bearer <replace with your API Key>"}


  1. Click Next step.
  2. After loading the API response, you’ll need to select the column you pretend to show. To do this, you select them on the Table columns.
  3. Optionally, you can also configure the Table orientation and the Table behavior.
  4. To finish, click on Save all changes.
