I was the one who wrote the original script. Over time, I've seen various copy pastes on this site itself. So, I know push. It was one of my first attempts to flat Those days We didn't have flat :. TheMaster yes I noticed my mistake.CRUD OPERATION ON GOOGLE SHEETS - DATABASE USING HTML ,JQUERY, APP SCRIPT
TheMaster please don't take it offensive Thank you for the script, I tried multiple threads to find a way I'm trying to learn by example and also by the hard way. Nix It's ok. But if I may ask, where did you find the script?
I'm trying to find out how to write data to a single range in a spreadsheet using Google Apps Script. Looks like Google Help in the section Writing data is not good enough. You start by getting a reference to a Range with the getRange function.
Once we have that, and since this range consists of a single cell, we can use the setValue function:.
If you have a multi-cell range which is more commonand you don't want to write the same value to all of the cells, you need to use the setValues function note the pluralwhich takes an array of arrays [] as argument:. In this case, we have two cells on the same row, so the outer array has a single element: the inner array, which again have two elements - one for each cell.
I have created an example spreadsheet to demonstrate these snippets - feel free to copy it. Please note that any function that directly fetches or manipulates spreadsheet data directly, is slow, regardless of the amount of data involved.

So keep the number of spreadsheet function calls low. If you want to update multiple cells, it is usually better to fetch the full array of values first, then update the values you want to change, and write back the whole array. In this example, we have a spreadsheet with data from A1 to H8but we want to update only two cells: D7 and G6.
Finally, we write the array back to the range. We can update as many values we like in the array, while keeping the number of spreadsheet function calls low - only a single getValues and a single setValues.
From your comment it is probably worth mentioning how a pure function can be used from a spreadsheet. A pure function is a function that has no side effects, that is, its return value depends only on its arguments. Let's say you want a function multiplies an input value with 2, and returns its result. Enter this in the script editor:. A2 will then display 8. You could also use other cells as arguments. Cell A2 will now display Here 's another example for pure functions, and read more about Custom functions in Google's documentation.
The function. I created this small function which i find quite useful, it makes it easier to put data into ranges. Sign up to join this community. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top.

Common operations are renaming a sheet and accessing range objects from the sheet.
Activates this sheet. Does not alter the sheet itself, only the parent's notion of the active sheet. Scripts that use this method require authorization with one or more of the following scopes :. Appends a row to the spreadsheet. This operation is atomic; it prevents issues where a user asks for the last row, and then writes to that row, and an intervening mutation occurs between getting the last row and writing to it.
Sheet — the sheet, useful for method chaining. DataSourceSheet — A data source sheet. Removes all conditional format rules from the sheet. Equivalent to calling setConditionalFormatRules rules with an empty array as input. Formatting refers to how data is formatted as allowed by choices under the "Format" menu ex: bold, italics, conditional formatting and not width or height of cells.
Copies the sheet to a given spreadsheet, which can be the same spreadsheet as the source. The copied sheet is named "Copy of [original name]". Sheet — The new sheet, for chaining. Returns a DeveloperMetadataFinder for finding developer metadata within the scope of this sheet.
Metadata is in the scope of a particular sheet if it is either associated with the sheet itself, or associated with a row, column, or range on that sheet. DeveloperMetadataFinder — A developer metadata finder to search for metadata in the scope of this sheet.
TextFinder — The TextFinder for the sheet. Note: It's preferrable to use getCurrentCellwhich the returns the current highlighted cell. Range — the current active cell. Returns the selected range in the active sheet, or null if there is no active range. If multiple ranges are selected this method returns only the last selected range. The term "active range" refers to the range that a user has selected in the active sheet, but in a custom function it refers to the cell being actively recalculated.
Range — the active range. Returns the list of active ranges in the active sheet or null if there are no active ranges. If there is a single range selected, this behaves as a getActiveRange call. RangeList — the list of active ranges. Banding — All the bandings in this sheet. EmbeddedChart — An array of charts. Returns the GroupControlTogglePosition for all column groups on the sheet. GroupControlTogglePosition — true if the column grouping control toggle is shown after the group on this sheet and false otherwise.
The group depth indicates how many groups overlap with the column. This can range between zero and eight. Integer — The group depth of the column at the given index. ConditionalFormatRule — An array of all rules in the sheet. Returns the current cell in the active sheet or null if there is no current cell. The current cell is the cell that has focus in the Google Sheets UI, and is highlighted by a dark border.A collection of one or more Range instances in the same sheet.
You can use this class to apply operations on collections of non-adjacent ranges or cells. Selects the list of Range instances. The last range in the list is set as the active range. RangeList — The list of active ranges, for chaining. Scripts that use this method require authorization with one or more of the following scopes :.
Break all horizontally- or vertically-merged cells contained within the range list into individual cells again. RangeList — This range list, for chaining. Ignores the cells in the range which currently do not contain either the checked or unchecked value configured. Clears the range of contents, formats, and data validation rules for each Range in the range list.
Clears the range of contents, format, data validation rules, and comments, as specified with the given options.
By default all data is cleared. Clears the content of each Range in the range list, leaving the formatting intact. Clears the data validation rules for each Range in the range list. Clears text formatting for each Range in the range list. Clears the note for each Range in the range list. Returns a list of one or more Range instances in the same sheet.
Range — The list of ranges. Inserts checkboxes into each cell in the range, configured with true for checked and false for unchecked. Sets the value of all cells in the range to false.
Inserts checkboxes into each cell in the range, configured with a custom value for checked and the empty string for unchecked. Sets the value of each cell in the range to the empty string. Inserts checkboxes into each cell in the range, configured with custom values for the checked and unchecked states. Sets the value of each cell in the range to the custom unchecked value.
Removes all checkboxes from the range. Clears the data validation of each cell, and additionally clears its value if the cell contains either the checked or unchecked value. Sets the background color for each Range in the range list. Color is represented in in CSS notation; for example, ' ffffff' or 'white'.Access and modify spreadsheet ranges.
A range can be a single cell in a sheet or a group of adjacent cells in a sheet. Sets the specified range as the active rangewith the top left cell in the range as the current cell. Sets the specified cell as the current cell. If the specified cell is present in an existing range, then that range becomes the active range with the cell as the current cell. If the specified cell is not present in any existing range, then the existing selection is removed and the cell becomes the current cell and the active range.
Note: The specified Range must consist of one cell, otherwise it throws an exception. Scripts that use this method require authorization with one or more of the following scopes :. Applies a default column banding theme to the range. By default, the banding has header and no footer color. Banding — The new banding. Applies a specified column banding theme to the range. Applies a default row banding theme to the range.
Applies a specified row banding theme to the range. Fills the destinationRange with data based on the data in this range. The new values are also determined by the specified series type. The destination range must contain this range and extend it in only one direction. For example, the following fills A1:A20 with a series of increasing numbers based on the current values in A1:A4 :. Calculates a range to fill with new data based on neighboring cells and automatically fills that range with new values based on the data contained in this range.
These new values are also determined by the specified series type. The calculated destination range considers the surrounding data to determine where the new values should be inserted: if there is data to the immediate left or right of a column that is being auto-filled, new values only extend as far as this adjacent data. For example, if A1:A20 is filled with a series of increasing numbers and this method is called on the range B1:B4 which contains a series of dates, new values are only inserted into B5:B In this way, these new values "stick" to the cells that contain values in column A.
Determines whether the user has permission to edit every cell in the range. The spreadsheet owner is always able to edit protected ranges and sheets. Boolean — true if the user has permission to edit every cell in the range; false otherwise. Ignores the cells in the range which currently do not contain either the checked or unchecked value configured. By default all data is cleared.
This clears text formatting for the cell or cells in the range, but does not reset any number formatting rules. Collapses all groups that are wholly contained within the range.
If no group is fully within the range, the deepest expanded group that is partially within the range is collapsed. Copy the formatting of the range to the given location. If the destination is larger or smaller than the source range then the source is repeated or truncated accordingly. Note that this method copies the formatting only. For a detailed description of the gridId parameter, see getGridId.Complete the steps described on this page, and in about five minutes you'll have created a spreadsheet with custom functions, menu items, and automated procedures.
With only a small amount of code, you've created custom functions, added a menu item, and automatically generated a new sheet of information.

Quickstart: Menus and Custom Functions
A cell is a location at the intersection of a particular row and column, and may contain a data value. This page describes the basics of using the spreadsheets. If you need to update formatting or other properties in a sheet, you will need to use the spreadsheets collectionwhich is described in Updating Spreadsheets. The spreadsheets. In general, it is a good idea to combine multiple reads or updates with the batchGet and batchUpdate methods respectivelyas this will improve efficiency.
You can find examples of each of these methods in the Basic Reading and Basic Writing samples pages. To read data from a sheet, you will need the spreadsheet ID and the range s A1 notation. The format of the output is controlled by three optional parameters:. The singular and batch get methods are described below. For examples of basic read operations, see the Basic Reading recipes page.
To read a single range of data out of a spreadsheet, use a spreadsheets. The response to this request is returned as a ValueRange object. To read multiple discontinuous ranges, use a spreadsheets. To write to a sheet, you will need the spreadsheet ID, the range s in A1 notation, and the data you wish to write arranged in an appropriate request body object. Updates require a valid ValueInputOption parameter for singular updates, this is a required query parameter; for batch updates, this parameter is required in the request body.
Reading & Writing Cell Values
The ValueInputOption controls whether input strings are parsed or not, as described in the following table:. The singular and batch update methods are described below.
For examples of basic write operations, see the Basic Writing recipes page. To write data to a single range, use a spreadsheets. The body of the update request must be a ValueRange object, though the only required field is values. If range is specified, it must match the range in the URL. In the ValueRange, you can optionally specify its majorDimension. By default, ROWS is used. When updating, values with no data are skipped. To clear data, use an empty string "". If you want to write multiple discontinuous ranges, you can use a spreadsheets.
Each ValueRange object specifies its own rangemajorDimensionand the data to input. To append data after a table of data in a sheet, use a spreadsheets. The input range is used to search for existing data and find a "table" within that range.
Values are appended to the next row of the table, starting with the first column of the table. For example, consider a sheet Sheet1 that looks like:. There are two tables in the sheet: A1:C2and B4:D6.
Appended values would begin at B7 for all the following range inputs:. The following range inputs would not start writing at B7 :. Additionally, you can choose if you want to overwrite existing data after a table or insert new rows for the new data. By default, the input overwrites data after the table.
