Google Sheets Spreadsheet ID (Easiest Way to Find It in 2024)

Google Sheets Spreadsheet ID

A Google Sheets spreadsheet ID is a unique identifier used by Google Sheets to distinguish each spreadsheet. This ID is part of the URL of the spreadsheet when you open it in your web browser.

For example, in the URL:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1A2B3C4D5E6F7G8H9I0J1K2L3M4N5O6P7Q8R9S0T1U2V/edit

the spreadsheet ID is the string of characters between /d/ and /edit, which in this case is:

1A2B3C4D5E6F7G8H9I0J1K2L3M4N5O6P7Q8R9S0T1U2V

This ID is used in various Google Sheets API requests to specify which spreadsheet you want to access or modify. It's a critical component for developers working with Google Sheets through the API, allowing for operations such as reading or writing data to specific sheets within the spreadsheet.
