I used this query after studying from Google:

=QUERY(IMPORTRANGE("https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1_Mh5lEqBh1OBzuW5U1Fvr1MK_6doIvKmV23YKp4Fu0c/edit#gid=529591601","'iOS'!E:G"), "Select Col4",1)

I am getting the error as follows:

Unable to parse query string for Function QUERY parameter 2: NO_COLUMN: Col4

What should I do for it?

  • I'm wondering if the formula has a typographical error or if there is a conceptual error. – Rubén Aug 31 '17 at 15:21

User started by posting the above as an answer, so I presume is not going to return. The solution may be to change the E:G to E:H. Fortunately Google can count and isn't going to return the fourth column of three, as clearly stated in the error message:


  • The first line make this answer to look as "a commentary to another post", by the other hand the third statement looks confusing, isn't it? – Rubén Aug 31 '17 at 15:23
  • IMHO that is the second statement. I was referring to "Fortunately Google can count and isn't going to..." – Rubén Aug 31 '17 at 15:34
