I would like to create a Google Spreadsheet and reference a cell(-range) from that spreadsheet in a Google Document.

Basically, I want the spreadsheet to be a variable holder where I can input data to the fields I want, and the document displays this data in a format that looks better. Very much like creating a report to display my data.

How would this be accomplished?

p.s. I know how to reference a cell from one spreadsheet to another, this is NOT what I want. I want to reference a cell(-range) from a spreadsheet but I want to have the reference in a document.

    That's not possible. The only way to do that, is to use Google Apps Script. Jun 25, 2014 at 21:15
  • I tagged it [google-drive] because there wasn't a [google-scripts] a [google-docs] nor a [google-spreadsheet]. Is there a more effective tag I should have used? I'm new to the webapps stackexchange group. Jun 26, 2014 at 13:15
  • @pnuts I don't even see your original comment that I responded to?! I forget the ping (@) thing, gotta start remembering that one... Jul 11, 2014 at 19:53
