Hello,
It is supposed to be like that because it is a CSV (Comma Separated Values) file. Is it appearing like that when you open it in Excel as well? Or is it getting divided into separate columns in Excel?

Correct and works as intended.
Excel doesn’t divide columns by comma by itself. Either use semicolon as separator in the WriteCsv activity or in Excel use split text to columns (on ribbon under data).

Unfortunately it is same when I open it in Excel…

I use semicolon in the writecsv activity but I cannot use semicolon in add data row / Arrayrow field it gives error…

Thank you to all my problem is resolved when I use semicolon as delimeter in Write Csv activity (I thought that I should also use semicolon in add data row / Arrayrow field)
