  1. Hi,Suresh!
    What a great and perfect explanation.Wish I saw it before I tried all the variations by myself when handling spreadsheets!
    Hope it will be of use to a beginner in this topic, as it has great guidance.

  2. Very good post on Downloading Google Spreadsheets…

  3. Didn’t work for me. I uploaded an XLSX spreadsheet and the url is now
    If I add the &output=xls to it, downloading still is for a xlsx file.
    On the menu under file, there is also no Save As option available.
