Cannot Datashare to Google Sheets - Too Much Data

I am trying to use a datashare to import a CSV to Google Sheets, but when I attempt to do so, Sheets' IMPORTDATA function returns 'Error: Resource at url contents exceeded maximum size.' Does anyone have a solution for this? I would like to use Google Sheets, if possible. Can I select specific columns to import as a way to reduce the quantity of data? Can I split the data into separate pages or sheets? Thank you.

    Hi Daniel,

    Take a look at the query parameters supported by data shares. Your best best is probably to implement some sort of pagination scheme using the per_page and page parameters.

    Thanks Bryan. I'm having trouble figuring out how to use query parameters. Is there a specific syntax to follow, or something more to it?

    Something like this:{ACCESS_TOKEN}.csv?per_page=100&page=1.

    Other than project ID and Fulcrum ID do you know whether it's possible to only import rows in which a specified field meets a certain value? E.g. Only import data where gender = male?

    We are working on a Query API, which will help with this. In the meantime, you can filter the data once it's in Google Sheets.
