    Is there a way to modify how the address is received on the back-end using this widget?  The address is returned across multiple lines in excel making it hard to "use" the address.  Is there a way to keep this as a comma delimited value etc?

    Unfortunately, the address autocomplete widget value is passed without comma separation. 

    I would suggest you to read about split function for Google Spreadsheets. You can add a separate column that will parse the string without comma separated values by using it.

    Note: It is important that the column is added on the part of the spreadsheet which is not generated automatically since your data will be overwritten.
