Reference data from other sheets

Within a single spreadsheet, you can replicate data and copy it from one sheet to another.

Get data from other sheets in your spreadsheet

  1. On your computer, go to docs.google.com/spreadsheets/.
  2. Open or create a sheet.
  3. Select a cell.
  4. Type = followed by the sheet name, an exclamation point, and the cell being copied. For example, =Sheet1!A1 or ='Sheet number two'!B4.

Note: If a sheet name contains spaces or other non-alphanumeric symbols, include single quotes around it (as in the second example).
