Import and convert old spreadsheets to Sheets

If you have an existing spreadsheet you created in another program, you can easily import and convert it to Sheets.

  1. Go to Drive.

  2. Click New > File Upload. Then, choose the old spreadsheet from your computer. Supported files include .xls, .xlsx, .xlt, .ods, .csv, .tsv, .txt, and .tab.

  3. Right-click the spreadsheet you want to convert.

  4. Select Open with and choose Google Sheets.

Converting your spreadsheet from another program creates a copy of your original file in Sheets format. You can then edit it in your browser like any other Sheet.
