Search for rows in google sheets before adding new row


New user to make though have some experience of Python, I am however in no way a coder or automation expert. Zapier is as advanced as I get.

I have a scenario setup where using oauth2.0 data is taken from a system and the relevant columns are moved into google sheets.

It currently gets the last 200 records. I am really struggling to make it not put another 200 in and only parse data that isn’t already there.

I’ve tried adding another google sheets step to search the records (after http and before the iterator) then route where records not found to go to sheets - but it doesn’t work.

Happy to answer any questions, and apologies for eh naivety - we’re all here to learn though!
