Updating Rows

Example data

To get started, we prepare a sheet named Cities as below:

| |A | B | C | D | |-|-------------|--|---|------| |1|name|state|country|population |2|San Francisco|CA|USA|860000


Please prepare the same data as above in a new (or existing) spreadsheet. You will need to use your Spreadsheet ID as descibed in Getting Started in example codes.

Update a row

To change the data on a row that already exists, send a PUT request to the rowIndex URL. Any fields you don’t specify will remain unchanged, so you can update just a subset of the row's data.

For example, to change population of San Francisco in Cities sheet.

curl "" \
-X PUT \
-H "Authorization: Bearer YOUR_API_KEY" \
-H "X-Spreadsheet-Id: YOUR_SPREADSHEET_ID" \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-d '{"population" : 3314000}'
const fetch = require('isomorphic-fetch');
fetch("", {
  method: "PUT",
  headers: {
    "Authorization": "Bearer YOUR_API_KEY",
    "X-Spreadsheet-Id": "YOUR_SPREADSHEET_ID",
    "Content-Type": "application/json"
  body: JSON.stringify({"population" : 3314000})
}).then(r => r.json())
.then(result => console.log(result))

The response body is a JSON object containing requesting data

  "rowIndex": 2,
  "population": "3314000"

The sheet content should look like below:

| |A | B | C | D | |-|-------------|--|---|------| |1|name|state|country|population |2|San Francisco|CA|USA|3314000
