Write to a Google Drive folder using Worksheet Writer

Dear community,

Does anyone know how to configure the Worksheet Writer snap to write to a specific folder in Google Drive?

Thank you!

Not at this time. You would have to create a blank file in the location you want it, then select it from the dropdown in the Snap to write to that file.

Thank you for the reply.

Actually, the requirement is we have CSV files in a file share and we wanted to ‘send/write’ these to Google Drive. My initial thought is to use File Reader > Mapper > Worksheet Writer (to a specific folder where I can manage the security). Since this feature in the Worksheet Writer snap is not yet available - how would you like to configure the pipeline for this case? What other snap can I use for this purpose?

You can create a blank spreadsheet in the target google driver folder. And provide this new spreadsheet’s name in your pipeline’s Worksheet writer snap. Provide a valid worksheet name as well. Then you are all good. You can have a pipeline with File Reader + CSV Parser + Worksheet Writer.

Hi!

I have a follow-up question. The other source file that I wanted to write from sftp to Google drive is generated daily and the filename has a date on it. How would you handle this scenario?

If you know what format the date is in, you can use an expression to replicate it.

"Filename" + Date.now().toLocaleDateTimeString('{"format":"MMYYYY"}')

This should work if run on the same day. If you are running it a day later, you would need to add .minusDays(1)

Thank you @dmiller and @smudassir for sharing the insights.
I wasn’t aware of worksheet writer before today, now I’ve been exposed to it.

Thanks a bunch for sharing this…
