I'm attempting to import some data to my Google Sheet.

Using QUERY to reshape my data, an example code of what I am trying to import is as follows:

 "table",8),"Select * where Col2 is not null order by Col1")

Unfortunately, in many cases where a team is an underdog and the line should be +#, the query is not returning the value.

If I remove the QUERY and use the following importhtml all values show up correctly:


Any insight into the matter or ideas on what might be causing this or solutions would be greatly appreciated.


this is because imported data are in the format +2.5 instead of simple 2.5

the solution is to remove + sign with:

 IMPORTHTML("http://statfox.com/cbb/cbbteam.asp?teamid=DUKE&season=2019&log=1", "TABLE", 8),
 "+", "")), "Select * where Col2 is not null order by Col1")
