var ss= SpreadsheetApp.openByUrl(“URL_OF_THE_SPREADSHEET”);

var sh=ss. getSheetByName(“SHEET_NAME”);

Second step to Write Data in Google Spreadsheet is to call a function from submit button. This part is very much similar to event handling in Java AWT. To do so, bind the button event with its handler and pass the method name as parameter to call. See the code below:
