gspread documentation does not have any examples of adding formulas to the cells. If you try to use them with
update_cell methods it records them as a string and not as a Formula.
You should instead use the
Updating a Single Cell, considering you know the exact Row and Column Number
Updating a Single Cell, considering you the exact Row and Column Number are not known
cell = worksheet2.find("David Letterman")
row_number = cell.row
I was facing a 5 second time delay adding data to Google Spreadsheets while using the gpread library. Web search revealed the same with other users as well.
Web search led me to pygsheets, a user seemed to claim that it is much faster when writing data into Google Spreadsheets, but my experience has been different.
Pygsheets takes a minimum 9 seconds to save a record compared to 5 seconds with gpread. If a coder has had a better experience, kindly do share your feedback.
There are few tutorials online for pygsheets, I am assuming the slowness of the system might be the reason.
from oauth2client.service_account import ServiceAccountCredentials
scope = ['https://spreadsheets.google.com/feeds', 'https://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive']
creds = ServiceAccountCredentials.from_json_keyfile_name('client_secret.json', scope)
client = pygsheets.authorize(service_file='client_secret.json')
workbook = client.open("Spreadsheet_File_Name")
worksheet1 = workbook.worksheet_by_title("Sheet1")
