However, the data does not get re-imported from the referenced workbook.
My assumption would be that Google would have taken care of this for me, but the data in the "referencing sheet" does not get updated, and the only way I can find to get it to update is to physically go into the "source sheet" and edit it myself.
@pnuts Can you explain what you mean by "ensuring that the right version is used as the source"?
I have the settings for both sheets set to update every minute and the tabs are set to refresh every minute.
function) that manipulates and interprets the data.
My problem is that whenever I personally modify the referenced workbook, the referencing workbook updates just fine, but whenever the external application modifies it, it does not get updated.
I have tried editing the "Spreadsheet settings" so that recalculation is done every minute and on every change.Furthermore, I have also installed an extension in Google Chrome that auto-refreshes the page every hour.Also, both workbooks are using the new Google Sheets.Edit: Also, this question is not the same as How do I link a cell in Google Spreadsheets to a cell in another document?because I am using the function given as the solution to that question to import data from a spreadsheet.The problem is not how to import the data, but rather how to update the source for the data.
