You send data from your Excel sheet using the iPush() function. This function sends the values, styles and formatting for the Excel range you’ve selected to ipushpull each time your data updates. It can then be viewed in any of our client apps.

We’ve already added a sample iPush() function into cell J17 in the Live Push demo sheet. Next you’ll configure it by entering your Folder and Page name. If you don’t know your Folder and Page Name, you can find them in the ipushpull app here.

  • Before you enter your folder and page names the iPush() function will return an error message:

  • Enter your Data Page Name into the cell coloured orange (J13).
