If you’re looking for a way to automate your data import process in Google Sheets, you’re in luck! There are a few different methods you can use to accomplish this, and we’ll walk you through each one.
The first method is to use the Google Sheets ImportHTML function. This function allows you to import data from a table or list within an HTML document. For example, if you wanted to import a list of countries and their capitals, you could use the following ImportHTML function:
=ImportHTML(“http://example.com/list-of-countries.html”, “table”, 1)
This would import the first table from the specified HTML document. You can also use the ImportXML function to import data from XML documents.
The second method is to use the Google Sheets API. This method requires a bit more technical know-how, but it’s perfect for those who want to automate their data import process. We won’t go into too much detail here, but you can find more information in our API documentation.
Finally, you can also use the Google Sheets Add-ons to automate your data import. There are a few different add-ons available, and they all have their own unique features. For example, the Easy Data Transform add-on allows you to easily import data from a CSV file or JSON file.
Whichever method you choose, you can save yourself a lot of time by automating your data import process in Google Sheets!
