accepted Google Spreadsheets: how to specify entire sheet as range?

comment Google Spreadsheets: how to specify entire sheet as range?
Thanks, but my current workaround does not require one to know how many rows the sheet has, nor how many columns it has as long as it has <676 columns.

comment Google Spreadsheets: how to specify entire sheet as range?
I appreciate the effort, but as far as I can tell, your suggestion yields no advantages over the workaround I mentioned in my question, but has the disadvantages of being more verbose and requiring the user to input a character that won't ever be present in the sheet.

Thanks, but I think you missed the part where I said, "by using the column name ... and the row name". :)

comment Search by thread rather than email in Gmail
Thanks, phwd :) Although it would be ideal to get a solution that doesn't require programming, if you've got a solution that does require programming, I'd still be interested in it, so please do post a link to the relevant JSfiddle or PasteBin or what-have-you.

comment Search by thread rather than email in Gmail
PS. If it seems like I'm having trouble accepting this as a hard limitation of Gmail then it's because it seems to me like such obviously useful functionality that I find it difficult to believe Gmail's developers failed to provide it.

comment Search by thread rather than email in Gmail
I don't want to automatically label anything "To-do", except, perhaps, all other messages in a thread in which one message is already marked "To-do" - which would then let me search as though the label "To-do" applied to the thread rather than to the message. If there's a way to do this, please tell me; but I don't think filters are up to the task. I'm looking through the API docs now; is there, for instance, some way to find thread IDs through the Gmail web interface?

comment Search by thread rather than email in Gmail
It doesn't make sense to me to set up a filter to label all incoming messages of possible interest, since they are already labelled: i.e. they are labelled "inbox".

comment Search by thread rather than email in Gmail
How, then, can I get conjunction of the set of threads I get when I search for "labels:To-do" and the set of threads I get when I search for "in:inbox"?

phwd, thanks, but I still don't see how either the subject field or the to field is relevant. I'm interested in finding all threads showing in the inbox and which have (one or more emails tagged with) a particular tag. I have no other information whatsoever about those threads: i.e. it doesn't matter to me who started the thread, who received emails in the thread, nor what the subject was. Does this help you see why I think neither the subject field nor the to field are relevant to my questions?
