Appending a Google Sheet with xlsx file created in n8n

Me again I am afraid,

I have created a workflow that downloads a csv file converts it JSON, filters for UK data and then converts the JSON to xlsx.

What I cannot wrap my head around is how I then append this to a google template sheet I have in mydrive. I have tried many times with the google sheets node append and append & update but the sheet does not update or if it does it only brings back the header rather than the 500+ rows of data that I need to show.

I know I am pretty close to resolving this but need that bit of extra help to get me over the line…many thanks


Information on your n8n setup

  • 1.29.1

It looks like your topic is missing some important information. Could you provide the following if applicable.

  • n8n version:
  • Database (default: SQLite):
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app):
  • Operating system:

hello @villa1980

Why do you need the Convert node? You can append items into google sheet node directly.

Hi barn4k,

I am very new to n8n and this is my second workflow that I have created so probably including unnecessary nodes :slightly_smiling_face:
I have now got it to append to the google sheet from the csv, however, when I add a new file to append to the google sheet, it keeps adding the previous file data to the google sheet and not the data from the new file

Can you provide a workflow?

I think I have found the issue, the download part was looking at an old filename so kept updating with that. Have changed it now to look at a generic name and seems to have worked. Newby mistake methinks
