Deletes one or more (work)sheets from a (spread)Sheet.

sheet_delete(ss, sheet)



Something that identifies a Google Sheet: its file ID, a URL from which we can recover the ID, an instance of googlesheets4_spreadsheet (returned by gs4_get()), or a dribble, which is how googledrive represents Drive files. Processed through as_sheets_id().


Sheet to delete, in the sense of "worksheet" or "tab". You can identify a sheet by name, with a string, or by position, with a number. You can pass a vector to delete multiple sheets at once or even a list, if you need to mix names and positions.


The input ss, as an instance of sheets_id
