Is it possible to specify in a HTML query from a Google Spreadsheet not to be case sensitive?

For instance, I need to query all rows where column A contains the name "Jason". Since more people have access to the Spreadsheet and might insert Jason as "JASON" or "jason", the query will not filter these last two correctly.

    "HTML query"? What does HTML have to do with this? Perhaps you meant SQL (the query syntax is based on SQL, though it's much much more limited).

Use the =upper() function.

If you cannot use it in your HTML query, then add a helper column to your spreadsheet, and set it =upper(A1) etc, and then query the helper column from the HTML query.

    lower() will work just as well.

  • This is an acceptable work around for now.
