Google Sheets error: "The spreadsheet row could not be sent to Google Sheets. Required field "Row" (row) is missing."

Last updated:


You may see this error in your Google Sheets action: "The spreadsheet row could not be sent to Google Sheets. Required field "Row" (row) is missing."


  • Entering a value in the Row field that is not a row ID.
  • No values added to sheet.
  • No data in mapped fields.

How to fix it

Enter a row ID in the Row field

You must enter the row ID in the Row field. The row ID is a numeric value and corresponds to the row number that you see in Google Sheets.

To enter a row ID:

  • Select a row from the dropdown menu. This row will be used each time the action runs.
  • Enter a row ID as a custom value. The row ID will change each time the action runs.

You can use a Lookup Spreadsheet Row action to find a specific row in your sheet. This returns the row ID, which you can enter as a custom value.

Add values to your Sheet

You must set up your Sheet action.

Ensure mapped fields have data

Add values to your sheet

Make sure there are values in your sheet. Learn how to set up your sheet action.

Check that mapped fields have data

If your mapped fields have no data, check previous steps to ensure that information is correctly sent to the Google Sheets step.


You can use Formatter by Zapier to create a default value when a previous field doesn't contain data.
