Blueprint Summary Sheet Cell Linking Not Keeping Column Type Property

There is a cell in our intake/project pipeline sheet that is a multi-select drop down. It links to a metadata sheet when a project is provisioned and remains a multi-select drop down. But when it's linked to the summary sheet, it's just a text column with all the checked options typed out. I changed the property of the column on the summary sheet to be a drop down with the same options, but the choices remain typed out/don't update. How can i fix this?
