I'm sorry to see that you haven't gotten a response. I can't help,
because I can't understand the questions, perhaps because they
require intimate knowledge of Google Drive or of a library that
you're using to access Google Drive.  This is ordinarily an
amazingly helpful group; perhaps you could find a more specific
question that could be illustrated with shorter code.
