You may see this error in your Google Sheets action: "The spreadsheet row could not be sent to Google Sheets. There was an error writing to your Google sheet."
- Entering a value in the Row field that is not a row ID.
- Size limits.
- No values added to sheet.
- No data in mapped fields.
- Name of spreadsheet or worksheet changed.
- Punctuation in spreadsheet or worksheet name.
- Frozen or hidden columns/rows/cells.
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.
Your sheet cannot contain more than:
- 5,000,000 cells.
- 40,000 rows.
- 18,278 columns.
- 50,000 characters per cell.
If you exceed these limits, you must delete data from the sheet or use a different sheet.
Make sure there are values in your sheet. Learn how to set up your sheet action.
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.
If the name of your sheet or worksheet has changed, reselect both in the Zap editor.
If your spreadsheet or worksheet has punctuation marks on its name, remove any punctuation. Then, reselect both in the Zap editor.
Frozen or hidden columns can cause trouble for Zaps, so make sure to unfreeze or unhide any columns or cells in your spreadsheet.
