Google Apps Scripts setValues() incorrect height error

I've looked at some other questions similar to this, but I'm getting my array in a unique way and I can't figure out for the life of my how to change it to a 2D array.

//Special function for adding arrays, just use sumArray on first array with second array in parenthesis
Array.prototype.sumArray = function (arr) {

var sum = this.map(function (num, idx) {
return num + arr[idx];

return sum;
var array1 = [1,2,3,4];
var array2 = [5,6,7,8];
var sum = array1.sumArray(array2);
Logger.log("sum: " + sum);

var calc = ss.getRangeByName( "calc" );
var target = ss.getRangeByName( "target" );
var current = ss.getRangeByName( "current" );
var left = ss.getRangeByName( "left" );

var gainedEVs = calc.getValues();
var goalEVs = target.getValues();
var oldEVs = current.getValues();
var leftEVs = left.getValues();

//Make everything ints
for(var i = 0; i < oldEVs.length; i++) {
oldEVs[i] = parseInt(oldEVs[i]);
for(var i = 0; i < gainedEVs.length; i++) {

gainedEVs[i] = parseInt(gainedEVs[i]);
for(var i = 0; i < goalEVs.length; i++) {

goalEVs[i] = parseInt(goalEVs[i]);
for(var i = 0; i < leftEVs.length; i++) {

leftEVs[i] = parseInt(leftEVs[i]);

var newEVs = [[oldEVs.sumArray(gainedEVs)]];
var newLeft = [[goalEVs.subArray(newEVs)]];

//Now I try to set values and I get the error

I've tried changing the setValues to setValues([newEVs]); but that doesn't work either. Any clue on how I can get my array of newEVs to be the correct height? It has the right number of values, but those values are being stored in columns, not rows. (in this case all of my ranges are 6 rows 1 col)


Since your ranges are small, you don't have to worry too much about performance, so you can convert them from rows to columns using a loop:

var column = [];
for (var i=0; i<newEVs.length; i++){
