From Novice to Pro: Google Sheet Hacks with ChatGPT

Google Sheets is a powerful tool that has become an essential part of our daily lives, especially in the business world. With its ability to record, manipulate, and store numeric data, it’s no wonder that millions of people rely on it every day. However, despite its usefulness, Sheets can be quite daunting to use, especially for those who are new to it. That’s where ChatGPT comes in.

ChatGPT is an AI language model trained by OpenAI that uses natural language processing to automate repetitive tasks in Google Sheets. By creating VBA macros, ChatGPT can simplify the process of running calculations or updating data with just a simple command. This not only saves time but also ensures accuracy and consistency in your data.

3. Launch the sheet for a sidebar.


Its done ChatGPT is integrated and from beginner to expert can use it to increase their productivity. Let’s see with some examples how chatGPT makes the use of Google Sheets easy.

GPT Formula

Using this you can directly give a prompt to ChatGPT using a Google Sheets formula in a cell. This feature almost brings ChatGPT inside a cell of Google Sheets.

Format conversion

This is a very useful and time-saving feature for someone who doesn’t know programming. Using any programing language it’s easy to convert the given data in any format but using this GPT_CONVERT anyone can convert the data from one form to another.

Given below is the example of JSON data being converted into a tabular format.

Summarize the content

It is a very common use case that sometimes we get a Google Sheet having a lot of data in it. we can summarize the whole data into a few bullet points using this Googe Sheets sheet feature of ChatGPT.

Given below is the example of summarizing long content into 5 bullet points. You can see that in the formula of GPT_SUMMARIZE(), we have passed the cells in which original data is present i.e. C1, C2 along with the points in which we want our data to be summarized i.e. D1.

Generate any Random points

Many times we want any random data to be filled row-wise in any column of the sheet. This task could be easily done using GPT_LIST(). Given below is the example of GPT_LIST(), to generate random quotes.

Formula Generation

Formulas are something that is commonly used in any Googe Sheets. If you don’t know the mathematics or keyword of formulas, ChatGPT can help you to calculate anything inside the sheets. It will generate the formula for you by taking the requirements in the prompt.

Input for aggregate Functions

Given below are examples of some aggregation formulas generated by chatGPT based on the description.

VLOOKUP is a popular function in Microsoft Googe Sheets used to search for specific data in a table or range of cells and retrieve related information from that table. Here are some reasons why you might want to use VLOOKUP in Googe Sheets:

  1. Retrieving data: VLOOKUP allows you to quickly and easily retrieve data from a table based on a search criterion. For example, if you have a table of product data and want to retrieve the price for a specific product, you can use VLOOKUP to search for that product name in the table and return its price.

In Googe Sheets, a macro is a set of instructions that automate repetitive tasks or perform complex operations. Macros can be particularly useful when you need to perform the same set of actions on multiple worksheets or when you need to manipulate large amounts of data.

Given below is the code of macro written by ChatGPT in VBA. Even if the user you have no knowledge of VBA but you can easily generate any macro using ChatGPT by giving the correct prompt.

The input of second number


In conclusion, using ChatGPT to assist with learning and using Googe Sheets can significantly enhance the user’s experience and ease of use. The use of conversational AI technology, such as ChatGPT, can provide a more interactive and personalized learning experience by answering questions, providing helpful tips, and offering step-by-step guidance.
