Properly Formatting and Querying your Google Sheet

Your Google Sheet must have column names in Row 1 (the first row).
When querying your Google Sheet, the sheet names are used as the table names.

Example

Google Sheet Example
Here in our spreadsheet named "Google Sheets Demo", "Data" and "Work" serve as the table names. "Id", "Created At", "Name", "Website", and "Description" are the column names.
An example query is below:
SELECT id, name FROM Data
