Google App Script - Make numeric entries 0 if conditions in another column match

around this issue If you only need to check contains "do not count", then you don't need separate conditions for each type of text.
The other change is that if there is no match, the result is null, not 0.
if(data[n][0].toString().match('do not count') != null){
  data[n][2] = 0;

How to make duplicate entries in xml with google apps-script

Tag : xml , By : user119985

I hope this helps you . Since you are converting the xml object to string, you can always create xml as string from the beginning.
function createXml(e) {
  var data = [["clipitem-1","video",1,1],["clipitem-2","audio",1,2]];
  var xml ='<xmeml version="4"><sequence><clipitem>';
  for(var i=0;i<data.length;i++){
  var blob = Utilities.newBlob(xml, 'text/html', e.parameter.filename + '.xml');
  return blob;

will help you I am try to make "Color check", It will change color when value input is detected. , Will be easier if you create a map of values to check for first.
function checkScriptCheck() {
  var ss = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet();
  var sheet = ss.getSheetByName("Sheet1");

  var datePaymentRange = sheet.getRange("A:A");
  var datePaymentValues = datePaymentRange.getValues();
  var dateInputValues = sheet.getRange("B:B").getValues();

  var datePaymentColumn = datePaymentRange.getColumn();
  var checkResultValueColumn =sheet.getRange("C:C").getColumn()

  //cleaning color

  //create map of values to check for
  var inputDates = {};
  for (var i = 1; i < dateInputValues.length; i++) { // Exclude header row
    var inputDate = dateInputValues[i][0];
    if (inputDate != "") { // Exclude blank values
      inputDates[inputDate] = true;

  //check and coloring
  for (var i = 1; i < datePaymentValues.length; i++) { // Exclude header row
    var paymentDate = datePaymentValues[i][0];
    if (inputDates[paymentDate]) {
      sheet.getRange(i+1, datePaymentColumn).setBackground("#00ff00");
      sheet.getRange(i+1, checkResultValueColumn).setValue("check");

How to match one column and replace a different (corresponding) column in another sheet using google apps script?

I wish did fix the issue. This function adds the new categories to the first sheet which in my case is Sheet1. I could have just as easily replaced the first with the second category in Sheet 1 but this way it's easier to tell whether the function caught the correct data.
function findCats() {
  var ss=SpreadsheetApp.getActive();
  var sh1=ss.getSheetByName('Sheet1');
  var rg1=sh1.getRange(2,1,sh1.getLastRow()-1,sh1.getLastColumn()+1);
  var vA1=rg1.getValues();
  var sh2=ss.getSheetByName('Sheet2');
  var rg2=sh2.getRange(2,1,sh2.getLastRow()-1,sh2.getLastColumn());
  var vA2=rg2.getValues();
  var obj2={nA:[]};
  for(var i=0;i<vA2.length;i++) {
  for(var i=0;i<vA1.length;i++) {
    var idx=obj2.nA.indexOf(vA1[i][0]);
    if(idx>-1) {
function so5664033702() {
  var ss=SpreadsheetApp.getActive();  
  var tarsheet=ss.getSheetByName('Old Categories');
  var tarLC =tarsheet.getLastColumn();
  var tarLR = tarsheet.getLastRow();
  var tarRange=tarsheet.getRange(2,1,tarLR-1,tarLC);
  //Logger.log("DEBUG: Target range ="+tarRange.getA1Notation());
  var tarValues=tarRange.getValues();
  // get the Cat2 values so that the range can be easily updated after the loop
  var tarcat2Range = tarsheet.getRange(2,6,tarLR-1);
  //Logger.log("DEBUG: Target Cat2 range ="+tarcat2Range.getA1Notation());
  var tarcat2Values = tarcat2Range.getValues();
  var srcsheet=ss.getSheetByName('New Categories');
  var srcLR = srcsheet.getLastRow();
  var srcRange=srcsheet.getRange(2,1,srcLR-1,3);
  //Logger.log("DEBUG: Source Range ="+srcRange.getA1Notation());
  var srcValues=srcRange.getValues();
  // create array to build names  
  var tarNames = [];
// loop through Old Category Names to pupulate the array  
  for (z=0;z<tarValues.length;z++){
  // loop through the new category Names to find the match on Old Categories
  // the value "c" will be the row number.
  for (i=0;i<srcValues.length;i++){
    var c = tarNames.indexOf(srcValues[i][0]);
    //Logger.log("DEBUG: c = "+c+", value: "+srcValues[i][0]+", cat2:"+tarcat2Values[c][0] +", new Cat2:"+srcValues[i][2]);
    // if c = -1, then there is no match; otherwise update the OldCategory/category2 value with the value from New category
    if (c!=-1){
      tarcat2Values[c][0] = srcValues[i][2];      
  } // end of the New category Loop
  // setValues for the Cat2 range with the updated values.

Lookup Values in one column and if match add the values from a different column Google Script Google Sheets

To fix this issue I am trying to make a script that will go thru all the values of one column and add the quantities of the matching column.
function countingBuckets() {
  var ss=SpreadsheetApp.getActive();
  var sh=ss.getSheetByName('b');
  var rg=sh.getRange(1,1,sh.getLastRow(),2);
  var vA=rg.getValues();
  var cb={bA:[]};
    if(!cb.hasOwnProperty(vA[i][0])) {

function countingBuckets() {
  var ss=SpreadsheetApp.getActive();
  var sh=ss.getSheetByName('b');
  var rg=sh.getRange(1,1,sh.getLastRow(),2);
  var vA=rg.getValues();
  var cb={bA:[]};
    if(!cb.hasOwnProperty(vA[i][0])) {
