I’m new to 8n8 (got it set up on my own VPS, Docker on Hetzner cloud, 0.204.0) and am learning. I’m trying to figure out how to perform a “lookup google sheets row”. I saw a thread exactly about that here: Find and update a key row where the awesome MutedJam shared a workflow. However I see the “lookup key” Google Sheets module which simply doesn’t exist for me and I also can’t find it in the community modules. I do apologize for the newbie question but how do I actually get that?
(I obviously looked through the docs as well and can’t find mention of this function which seems pretty basic)
to retrieve one (or more) row(s) with a given value you should use the Read rows operation.
Then you can use "Filters” to filter the list of rows, selecting a lookup column and the lookup value.
In “Options” you can also change the “When Filter Has Multiple Matches” settings, that allows you to get only the first match (always returns an item), or all the matching rows (could return more than one item).
Check the workflow here:
(the embedded n8n workflow is interactive, double click on the node to see the settings)
Hope it helps, let me know if that solves your problem!
