API Reference

Copy sheet


Asynchronously copies a sheet given details about the copy's destination within the same or another spreadsheet. Options are specified using a SheetCopy object.

This endpoint copies a sheet's content, but does not copy labels, comments, or tasks. It will copy over most formatting, however it does not copy user-defined style guides across spreadsheets. So if the source sheet has formatting that depends on a user-defined style guide, that formatting will be lost when copying to a new spreadsheet.

Unless otherwise specified, the copy appears at the top level of its destination spreadsheet, with an index of 0, and with the same name as the original sheet.

POST /spreadsheets/{spreadsheetId}/sheets/{sheetId}/copy
