I have googlesheets functions that parse json and import to sheets, you can find the code for the function in ImportJson file. The functions is pretty simple and self explanatory.
* Imports JSON data to your spreadsheet Ex: IMPORTJSON("[login to view URL]","city/population")
* @param url URL of your JSON data as string
* @param xpath simplified xpath as string
I had some additional requirements that this function cannot do. Need to search API output in JSON format for value and print entire array content.
For example I had a JSON output as attached file "[login to view URL]" . You can also check live version of this API on this link " [login to view URL]"
To get DCF value on "2019-03-30", I can simply use functions as this:
=IMPORTJSON("[login to view URL]","historicalDCF/0/DCF") as this date is the first in the array.
I need to search through date and get the value of Stock Price? For example I need to get the value of Stock price and DCF on this date "2017-09-30" . How could I do it without knowing array position ?
So for this I need help either by creating new function or modifying existing function to get this functionality.
Hi, You may need to search for the result to get the index instead of using explicit xpath like that, it will require change the input of the function but output will be kept Thanks Ngan Le
