To import a file into Zoho Sheet
To export a spreadsheet via URL
Paste the URL in a new tab/window and append &export=[file type]. Load the URL to export the spreadsheet in the given file type.
For example, for a spreadsheet that has the link
http://sheet.zoho.com/open.do?docid=631297000000212001, the export URL to xls will be
The allowed options for the 'export' parameter in the above URL are the same as the file extensions without the dots - xls, ods, sxc, gnumeric, csv, xml, xhtml, html, pdf. Note that you need to be logged in to export this way.
Similarly, for public spreadsheets, you have to suffix the URL with the file extensions like .xls or .ods. The export URL to xls will be http://public.sheet.zoho.com/public/zohosheet/sales-report.xls
Note: Public spreadsheets can be exported without the need to be logged in.
