A Python sample application that loads a sheet, updates selected cells, and saves the results
This is a minimal Smartsheet sample that demonstrates how to
- Import an XLSX file
- Load a sheet
- Loop through the rows
- Check for rows that meet a criteria
- Update cell values
- Write the results back to the original sheet
This sample scans a sheet for rows where the value of the "Status" column is "Complete" and sets the "Remaining"
column to zero.
This is implemented in the
evaluate_row_and_build_updates() method which you should modify to meet your needs.
Install the smartsheet Python SDK from pypi
pip install smartsheet --upgrade
- Update the python-read-write-sheet.py file with an API access token, obtained from the Smartsheet Account button,
under Personal settings (Alternatively, set a system environment variable
SMARTSHEET_ACCESS_TOKENto the value of your token)
Build and run the application.
The rows marked "Complete" will have the "Remaining" value set to 0. (Note that you will have to refresh in the desktop application to see the changes.)
A log file named
rwsheet.log will accumulate information about API calls.
