Google Sheets and Datatables

I am looking to determine why I cannot successfully use Datatables (Datatables.net) with a Google Sheets spreadsheet.  The google sheets link is:   https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1pk19yXW1CHgZFAWcif7S-5FS3LOgQ8bX4j-oWRdeND0/edit?usp=sharing

I have been told it is relatively simple to do, but I lack the basic understanding of Datatables and java.  I hope that someone can help with this as its for a good cause.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi,

can you please explain, what your exact aim here is? Where do you want to use datatables?

Thanks for clarification.

The goal with using Datatables with Google Sheets, is to be able to sort the data with the many functions that DataTables has.  This is the basic view of a datatables table, https://datatables.net/examples/basic_init/zero_configuration.html

I am just looking to have the data in the above referenced Google Sheet in a Datatables table.

Hi,
your Google sheet needs to be published so that the JSON URL from Google can be used.

I created my own small sample sheet and the following code works:
$(document).ready(function() {
    var results = [];
    var url = "https://spreadsheets.google.com/feeds/list/1WMbRG1H3MP79IVCgUSR6asrmca59KiwGykGGOVgjLfA/od6/public/values?alt=json";
    
    var jqxhr = $.getJSON(url, function() {
        console.log( "success" );
	})
  	.done(function(data) {
    	console.log( "second success" );
        var entry = data.feed.entry;
 		$(entry).each(function(){
    		// Column names are name, age, etc.
    		//results.push({"Id" : this.gsx$id.$t , "Name" : this.gsx$name.$t, "Country" : this.gsx$country.$t, "Solutions" : this.gsx$solutions.$t});
            results.push([this.gsx$id.$t , this.gsx$name.$t,  this.gsx$country.$t, this.gsx$solutions.$t]);
  		});
	    var table = $('#example').DataTable( {
    		data: results,
        columns: [
            { title: "Id" },
            { title: "Name" },
            { title: "Country" },
            { title: "Solutions" }
        ]
    	});
  	})
  	.fail(function() {
    	console.log( "error" );
  	})
  	.always(function() {
    	console.log( "complete" );
  	});
});

Open in new window


Full working sample:
http://jsfiddle.net/EE_RainerJ/2e5f1at8/

With the sample it should be easy for you to adopt to your own sheet.

Thank you, I have tried something similar to this, but it hasn't worked.  Can you try to get it to work using my link that I gave you at the top?
rapidpetAuthor Commented:
This is what I have now.  The bulk of which can be removed, as this is just an example page from Datatables.  Again, thank you for your time.
