1. Input Data to B5:E5
3. Script must copy data from B5:E5 to B13:E13
4. Script must delete data from B5:E5
5. New Input Data to B5:E5
6. Start the Script again...
7. Script must copy data from B5:E5 to B14:E14!
8. Script must delete data from B5:E5

Thanks for help!


Have a look at the following animated screenshot:

Have a look at the following code:


// This script has been developed by Kishan.
// For more visit

function onOpen() {
  var ss = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet();
  var menuEntries = [ {name: "Move 'B5:E5'", functionName: "copyAndDelete"} ];
  ss.addMenu("Move Values",menuEntries);// custom menu

function copyAndDelete() {
  var ss = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet();
  var sheet = ss.getSheetByName("Test");
  var copyRange = sheet.getRange("B5:E5");
  var l = sheet.getDataRange().getValues().length;
  var pasteRange = sheet.getRange( "B"+(l+1)+":E"+(l+1) );



put the above code in your script editor, and then you can use it directly in your Google Spreadsheet.

Click on the Menu "Move Values" (which is created by this script) and then click on "Move B5:E5". Then script will move the values to below the last row of the sheet "Test".
