TSV format

Easy Data Transform can input from and output to TSV format files. File extension ".tsv".


TSV (Tab Separated Value) format is commonly used for exchanging tabular data between programs.


TSV is a type of delimited text file format. Values are separated by tab characters. Tabs are not allowed within data values, so there is no need for quoting or escaping delimiters, as with CSV files. This means that TSV files are generally a bit more compact and faster to read and write than CSV files.


If you have a tab character in a value, Easy Data Transform will convert it to a space on output.
