What is a TSV file?

A TSV file stores a data table in which columns of data are separated by tabs. It can be imported into most spreadsheet programs, which format the data into cells. TSV files can also be exported by spreadsheet programs, which allows the data to be viewed with a basic text editor or word processing program.

More Information

TSV files are commonly used for exchanging data between databases. It is an alternative format to .CSV, which is another popular format for exporting spreadsheet data. CSV files use commas to separate columns of data instead of tabs.
