In Google Sheets


fills 100 columns with numbers 1-100.

=ImportJSON("http://www.domain.com/sample1.json", "")

inserts my JSON data keys and values into corresponding rows.

How can I set this up so that for each column, I change the number for the JSON file?

I tried combining these two functions but it just errors. =ArrayFormula(ImportJSON("http://www.domain.com/sample&row(1:100)&.json", ""))

Now this works:

=ArrayFormula(row(1:100)&ImportJSON("http://www.domain.com/sample1.json", ""))

but it's not putting the number in the desired spot. It's just adding it before each cell.

I think you forgot to separate the first part of the url, the formula and the second part with quotations, deeming them as strings, note there are quotes around "http://www.domain.com/sample" then a function insertion then the rest of the string ".json"

  • You got me thinking on the right track. It does still pose a problem when trying to use the ImportJSON function (which I found on GitHub) within the ArrayFormula function. I tried a few different things and finally came up with this: =ImportJSON("http://www.domain.com/sample"&row()-1&".json") This uses the number of the row to fill in the information in the ImportJSON function.

  • Good I'm glad you came to that, that was originally what I had done, I just modified my answer to support your range of rows :) but I was having an issue with the arrayformula for the import part as well Dec 18, 2015 at 19:21
