If you keep data in separate Google Sheets, copy a range of data from one spreadsheet to another with the IMPORTRANGE function.

For example, you may track quarterly sales data for a product in a different spreadsheet for each region. To combine all that quarterly sales data, copy the data from each region's spreadsheet into a single spreadsheet using IMPORTRANGE.


Use the IMPORTRANGE function
  1. In Sheets, open a spreadsheet.
  2. In an empty cell, type =IMPORTRANGE.
  3. In parenthesis, add the following specifications in quotes and separated by a comma:
    • The URL of the spreadsheet in Sheets.
    • The sheet name (optional) and the range of cells to import.
  4. Press Enter.
  5. Click Allow access to connect the two spreadsheets initially.

For example:

To import cells A1 through C10 from sheet 1 of the abcd123abcd123 spreadsheet, you type: =IMPORTRANGE("abcd123abcd123", "sheet1!A1:C10")
