Can form responses be added to an existing row?

I am collecting a lot of data and would like to keep all original content in 1-sheet that feeds other reports. If I were to add columns to an existing sheet and create a form for those new columns, could I have those responses added to an existing row?

    Hi @Chelsea LeBlanc

    I hope you're well and safe!

    • Yes, but you'd need to use a formula to match the original row with the added columns.
    • Another option could be to use the Update Request feature.

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

  • @Andrée Starå Would you please give an example of how the formula in your first optional solution above might look? I'm trying to populate row 1 of a sheet with form submissions that will populate rows 2-9 of the same sheet. At the end of the eighth form submission, all columns on row 1 should be populated.
