    Thanks for contacting us!

    Values from the Dynamic Dropdown are being placed in a single cell in spreadsheet since this entire field with all its various drop-downs is still just a single field. As a single field, all its selected data goes into a single cell. So it is not possible to put the values of Dynamic Dropdown in different columns of spreadsheet.

    You could ensure that values from all Drop Downs are forwarded to their own cells by using multiple regular Drop Down fields instead, and using Conditional Logic to show/hide drop downs based on values selected in previous drop downs. However, this may be tedious to set up and maintain, as you would need to create many drop downs and set up conditions for each of them.

    Please let us know if you need further clarification or assistance, we will be happy to help if we can.
