How to Import Excel Document into Google Sheets

Google Sheets, as well as Microsoft Excel, are used to create spreadsheets. 

However, when it comes to teamwork, Google Sheets is better with collaboration abilities. It allows you and your team to work on the same sheet. It also allows one person to work on multiple devices at the same time without disruption.

For this reason, you might want to import your spreadsheets from Microsoft Excel to Google Sheets.

Using the Import option in Google Sheets

Step 1: Open your Google Spreadsheet.

Open a new spreadsheet or an existing spreadsheet in which you want to import your data from Excel.

Step 2: Go to File and then Import.

After opening the sheet, go to the File tab and click on Import to open the Import file tab.

Step 3: Choose the Excel spreadsheet and click on Select.

To find the Excel sheet you want to import, navigate through the tabs at the top or find the sheet via the search bar. Once you find the file, select it and click on Select.

Step 4: Select your Import location.

After clicking on Select as discussed, a new tab by the same name (Import file) will show up. Here, choose your desired Import location. You can import the excel data in a completely new spreadsheet, in a new sheet, or in the same sheet you are using.

Step 5: Click on Import data.

Once you choose the desired location, click on Import data to import the Excel sheet to Google Sheets. If your import location is the same spreadsheet, the imported theme will apply. Everything else will remain the same.


If you follow these simple steps, you can import your Excel spreadsheet into Google sheets in no time. Then you can collaborate and share your sheets within or outside your team with more ease.
