hi,
With google sheet I can query any data sheet with one formula, eg:

=query(importRange(SourceDataKey, "regular!A:Z"),"SELECT * where upper(Col1)='F61' and upper(Col2)='IN'", true)

The output is an array of data.

I would like to be able to view this output automatically from a URL. I would generate a URL in google sheets and clicking it would show the results on a separate sheet.

myURL/... SourceData=.... Sheet=.... SQL= .....

Any suggestions welcome. I'm new to scripts but this might be an option too.

Thanks

From the developer documentation, this appears to be possible but I've only just seen this and not yet made it work:

Here's a working example URL that returns a query result:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1YemYMnvCewfTAIj6uqWQ8tGwMf-uQfsmXj1jRwIBO_c//gviz/tq?tq=select%20*%20where%20A%20%3C%2010

How can i have this display as a page? instead of downloading as a txt file which is in some kind of coded format

thanks

Here is a URL giving an HTML view of a google spreadsheet, but without any query:

https://spreadsheets.google.com/tq?tqx=out:html&range=A1:B20&key=1YemYMnvCewfTAIj6uqWQ8tGwMf-uQfsmXj1jRwIBO_c

I'm looking to combine this with a query

The following is a great overview, though the current URL syntax may have changed (see above for current examples)

http://acrl.ala.org/techconnect/post/query-a-google-spreadsheet-like-a-database-with-google-visualization-api-query-language

To specify a sheet, set the GID (visible in the URL when viewing that sheet)
