API Reference


Returns all data from a region, paging if necessary.

When paging, the revision parameter must be set and the per_page parameter indicates the maximum number of cells to include in a single response. The server enforces a maximum per_page of 50,000. An unbounded region may only be used to obtain the first page of results. Use the paged_region or next_url from the first page to retrieve subsequent pages. All cells in the requested region will appear exactly once during the paging process, however ordering is not guaranteed.

Detailed descriptions

Region: A1 style representation of a cell or range. A range may be unbounded in any/all directions by leaving off the corresponding column or row.

Cell Syntax: [Column][Row]

Range Syntax: [Start Column][Start Row]:[Stop Column][Stop Row]


  • The region A1 selects data in the cell A1
  • The region A2:D8 selects all data in the range between A2 and D8 (inclusive)
  • The region A:A selects all data in column A
  • The region 1:3 selects all data in rows 1 through 3
  • The region B3: selects all data below and to the right of B3 (inclusive)
  • The region : selects all data in the sheet

Be sure to URL encode the region to avoid misinterpretation of the :.

value_style: The style of cell value to return.
For example, if a cell's value is =1+1 you can use:

  • raw to get the raw value =1+1
  • calculated to get the calculated value 2

Calculated values will be returned by default.
