Nice to meet you, *****!
Would you be so kind to tell me more about that issue? Are you trying to find your file on your Google Drive or do you want to find it on Google Sheets?

my Google Drive


To find files Drive, filter your search results.

  1. Open the Google Drive app.
  2. At the top, tap Search Drive.
  3. Choose from the following options: File types: Excel (or documents)

And let me know if any of the steps are not quite clear.
I'll be happy to clarify them for you!
