Hey Makers Is it possible to automate this workflow - whenever a new file is uploaded to a Google Drive folder as a Google Sheet > grab certain columns of data within the newly uploaded Sheet > and then copy & paste those data to an existing Google Sheet?
I’m trying to set up this workflow but
- I’m not even sure if I should begin with “Watch Files in a Folder” or “Search for Files/Folder” module
- At step 2, how to map/locate a file that is non-existent until it is uploaded to the folder?
This is a screenshot of my unsuccessful attempt right now
Would you mind share some ideas to make it work?

Hi, @Willa; maybe, you can try to make this scenario and test it?
@Francisco_Fontes Thank you for the suggestions! Sadly somehow it doesn’t work as expected.
I got en error at Step 2
400: INVALID_ARGUMENT - Unable to parse range
Here is the current settings of the workflow and the details of the error in Step 2 “Search Rows” module:
My logic here at Step 2 is: if any rows in Column A contains texts, the scenario will grab those rows and proceed to Step 3 - add new rows in another spreadsheet
But I’m a bit confused as to what makes the operation did not go through. Could you help take a look what should I tweak in the settings?
Also, I’m curious what did you mean in your last screenshot here
It seems a bit cut off but I’d love to learn more! Could you share more on what’s important about the Sheet Name?
Thank you so much!
