This Excel sheet contains "Ship to Address" which has content delimited by pipes so I need to have a formula to split those content by pipes or comma and place them in "Ship to Address1","Ship to Address2","Ship to Address3"

Hello
You can go to Data tab, then Text to Columns option. Later, choose "Delimited" option and then select "other" and put any delimiter you want.
hope that helps

if you mean you have to have each line in D column in separate column then you can use Replace feature (Ctrl+H) to replace sign which makes new line in the cell with some other sign, e.g. pipe (|) where formula is:
=SUBSTITUTE(E2,CHAR(10),"|")
then you will have whole text in the one line so you can use Test-to-columns feature with the pipe as a delimiter
