Sorry if this thread is in the wrong place...I'm trying to save a copy of a Google Sheet to my desktop machine so I can load it later (do these work in Excel?) however I can't find any steps for saving a copy of it locally, only if it's a sheet I created. I'm using Mozilla Firefox, but can't see a "Save" button anywhere on the sheet. Should I be using another browser? I tried Chrome as well but again no Save button.

 

Thanks in advance smile

Is it a sheet that someone else has created and shared with you? The owner of a sheet (and other google docs) can prevent downloading and copying.

That might be what's happened - or it's for read-only access. I didn't create it :(

As per michaelmurfy's screenshot, do you have the option to make a copy?

No, I can't see one. If anyone wants to try downloading it themselves (I think it's a public page), you can do so here:

and then please tell me how you did it...

One way to get it would be to make your own Google Sheet and just copy paste over the data.

 

If you don't have Google Suits, just create a free Gmail address and go to Google Sheets, then copy paste from the public document to your own, and save from there.

That works.... Have to copy and paste each sheet.... Then do a bit of tidying up of the format...

Makes you wonder why they bother putting "copy protection" in there in the first place then...

They have used the option to publish as rich HTML output.

You can limit copy pasting using google docs too. Locked right down you'd basically have to rekey everything.

mdf: You can limit copy pasting using google docs too. Locked right down you'd basically have to rekey everything.

 

As long as its outputted as HTML (even if its done with Javascript) you can always copy it. Just a matter of difficulty.

 

Even if they just showed an image, it would still be possible to machine read the text.

 

 

 

Nothing you publish on the internet is technically protected, there are always ways to get to it.

 

 

 

BUT: That does not mean that anything published to the internet is free to use by anyone. Unless otherwise stated, anything you find on the internet is covered by someones copyright.

+1 re: machine reading

 

e.g. take screenshots and then use OCR

 

 

 

Alternatively, ask Mike Hernandez (apparently lpstd2@gmail.com) for a copy?
