Clipboard data moving into single column in excel spreadsheet

So I clicked “Batch Update” and “Copy to clipboard” to paste some data in the spreadsheet and make fixes and all data is copied into a single column in the excel sheet instead of being separated by columns. How to fix this? I am using latest excel and Windows 10

Use Batch Create and Batch Update functions | Manager

It is most likely Excel spread sheet setting.

Go to “Text to Columns” in Excel and ensure the “tab” delimiter is selected.

when you Paste the data don’t double-click on the cell before Pasting. just select the cell and hit Ctrl + V
