Copy only new rows to a "Target Sheet"

Copy only new rows to a "Target Sheet"

edited 12/09/19 in Using Smartsheet

Hi Community-

I have a source sheet that has a ton of financial data that we simply erase each day and paste in the new data. 

I have created a new sheet that only grabs some of the finacial data if a criteria is met using the "Copy Row" automation. However this seems to be adding in duplicate rows when I erase the data each day and paste in new data in the source sheet. I don't want to copy duplicate rows for a project ID already in the target sheet, but only update the data.

I have tried to combine "Copy Rows" if criteria is met and then use datamesh to overwrite the data in the Target sheet. It still occaisonally adds rows.

Source Sheet --> Copy Rows to Target Sheet if criteria is met (only new rows) --> Update existing financials if any changes on source sheet within Target Sheet

Datamesh would work for this alone if you could establish a criteria being met.

Any ideas?




  • Hi Jim,

    The "copy rows to another sheet" automation will copy rows that meet the specified criteria to the destination sheet. At this time it's not possible to replace or override sheet data with this automation, but this would be a great opportunity to submit a Product Enhancement Request.
