I created an Adobe Form where one of the pages is similar to a spreadsheet but cutting and pasting data in, puts all the inforamation in a single sell when we need it spread across the columns created.  I have searched and watched videos with no success and would prefer not to abandon the Adobe Form and head back to Excel.  Anyone have any guidance or tips and tricks?  Thanks in advance.

There is no built-in method for doing this because forms are not spreadsheets. There's no concept of cells within a grid. 

However, if there was some way to parse the pasted input, then a Custom Validation script in a cell could distribute the contents.
