How to connect your Google Sheets to ETL+ for data extraction.
ETL+ Mapping to your Google Sheets
Preparing Google Sheets with Google
Grant ETL+ with rights to extract your Google Sheets:
Open your Google Sheets spreadsheet
Select Editor on the dropdown list
Creating an ETL+ Google Sheets Source Object
Enter Alias name. Give a name for the source object shown on the Source Objects panel.

Maintaining an ETL+ Google Sheet Source Object
Maintaining a Google Sheet source: On ETL page’s left panel, right-click the Google Sheet source →
Mapping Tips: To map a group of cells from a Google Sheets table, use the name of the sheet followed by an exclamation mark, the column of the top left cell, its row, a colon, the row of the bottom right cell, and its column. Example: Sheet3!B3:D10.
All rows in one column: Sheet3!B:B (use the column name twice and omit the row numbers).
All rows in multiple adjacent columns: Sheet3!B:D (use the names of the first and last column in the range and omit the row numbers).
All columns in multiple adjacent rows: Sheet3!2:10 (use the numbers of the first and last row in the range and omit the column names).

Schedule the Data Load
On the ETL main page, click

Select a Refresh Batch or create a new one to load your Google Sheets source data on a schedule (help here) → on the right panel, be sure the Google Sheets source tables to load have their boxes checked and in the desired load order.
To load them now, click the
Refresh Batch Now(play icon) on the left panel for the desired Refresh Batch.
To schedule the data load:
WTS Settings-> enter the WTS parameters →
This step might require you to run ETL+ app as “Run as administrator” in Windows.
After ETL+ has loaded your Google Sheets source tables, this is to check if the data extraction process finished successfully and row count per extracted table matches with your Google Sheets source tables.
Login to ETL+ (help here).
On the ETL main page, click the top-right
Logicon. Log page help here.
Scroll down on the log page and double-check that no table load failed, and that the row count matches with the source Google Sheets tables. Following is an example highlighting two tables from a sample Google Sheets database and their loaded row count.
