I'm trying to figure out how to create a new worksheet with some headers with styling (bold, center, bg color and dropdown menu).

My main idea was to copy a worksheet from another Google Sheet reference but I can't find it in the list.

I can't copy the whole Google Sheet document as I already have some informations in it.

Do you have any clue on how I can achieve this ?

Hi @Scendre - you won't be able to copy a single worksheet, only the whole Google Sheet I'm afraid.

@Scendre Andrew is correct that you cannot copy a single worksheet within Zapier alone. But you do have other more complicated/advanced options as I'll list below: (listed in order from easiest/less automated, to complicated/more automated)

  • You could have a stand alone workbook (Sheets Document) that you copy to create your new file. - You'd have one place to make the formatting update moving forward. (But it would not be in the same file as your other worksheets)
  • You could create a new sheet with headers from a Zapier step and then use a Google Sheets Macro to apply formatting to the headers/validation etc. Firing the macro from Zapier is not possible as far as I know.
  • You could create a new sheet with headers from a Zapier step and then use Google Apps Script to apply formatting to the headers/validation etc. - you can fire the Apps script via a webhook through the Zap.

Let us know if you're interested in any of these and we'll see if we can help you with one of those methods.

Hmm thanks for your answers !

It seems that the better solution for me is the third one. If you have some ressources on how I can do that, I'll be happy to give it a try ! Thank you @PaulKortman :)
