    Default Need some help, Edit Row in google Docs...

    So I have been working with google docs and have created some very surprising things to date and I have one last piece to work out before I can fully implement the various pieces into its greater structure. I need to be able to edit a spreadsheet by its row number, I have found a script in the gallery that allows for this but it does so by using the "Active row". Is there some way to modify it so that it either asks for the row number or selects the row number based off a value in a given cell within the spreadsheet? Thank you in advance!

    Script below (authored by / according to the gallery info) *I have sent an email to the original author but no response*)

    function generateMenu() {
    var ss = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet();
    var menuEntries = [ {name: "Edit Data", functionName: "generateEditDataForm"}];
    ss.addMenu("Edit Form", menuEntries);

    function generateEditDataForm(){
    var mydoc = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet();
    var sheet = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSheet();
    var myapp = UiApp.createApplication().setTitle('Edit Data').setHeight('500');
    var scrollPanel = myapp.createScrollPanel().setSize(500, 500);
    var vPanel = myapp.createVerticalPanel();
    // Count of column headings
    ScriptProperties.setProperty('numColumns', sheet.getLastColumn());

    // Active Row
    ScriptProperties.setProperty('activeRow', sheet.getActiveRange().getRowIndex());
    numColumns = ScriptProperties.getProperty('numColumns');
    activeRow = ScriptProperties.getProperty('activeRow');

    var headings = sheet.getRange(1, 1, 1, ScriptProperties.getProperty('numColumns')).getVal ues();
    var activeRowData = sheet.getRange(ScriptProperties.getProperty('activ eRow'), 1, 1, ScriptProperties.getProperty('numColumns')).getVal ues();

    // Creating labels and data fields
    for(i in activeRowData[0]){
    var columnName = 'entry_' + i;
    var label = myapp.createLabel(headings[0][i]).setStyleAttribute("font-weight", "bold");
    if(activeRowData[0][i].length > 256)
    var dataField = myapp.createTextArea().setSize(200, 100).setName(columnName).setId(columnName).setText (activeRowData[0][i]);
    var dataField = myapp.createTextBox().setName(columnName).setId(co lumnName).setText(activeRowData[0][i]);
    // Adding label and field to panel

    // Horizontal panel for 'Edit' and 'Close' button
    var hPanel = myapp.createHorizontalPanel().setHeight(80).setVer ticalAlignment(UiApp.VerticalAlignment.MIDDLE);

    //'Edit' button
    var editButton = myapp.createButton("Edit");
    var editHandler = myapp.createServerHandler('showEditForm');

    //'Close' button
    var closeButton = myapp.createButton("Close");
    var closeHandler = myapp.createServerHandler('closeEditForm');


    // Edit form
    function showEditForm(e){
    var sheet = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSheet();
    var numColumns = ScriptProperties.getProperty('numColumns');
    var activeRow = ScriptProperties.getProperty('activeRow');
    for(i=1; i<=numColumns; i++){
    var columnName = 'entry_' + Math.abs(i-1);
    sheet.getRange(activeRow, i).setValue(e.parameter[columnName]);

    var app = UiApp.getActiveApplication();
    return app;

    // Close form
    function closeEditForm() {
    var app = UiApp.getActiveApplication();
    return app;

    That smells like Javascript, but this is a Java forum ...

    kind regards,
