What is a .TSV file?

TSV files store text and number data in plain text, with each line in the file representing a data record, which consists of one or more fields separated by tabs. The files may be used as an alternative to the more common CSV files, which separate data fields with commas instead of tabs. TSV files are often used to transfer data between different databases and programs, such as Microsoft Access and Microsoft Excel.

You may acquire a TSV file in a variety of ways. You may receive it as an email attachment from a coworker or friend sharing data, or you may export data from a database to import it into a spreadsheet program. While many programs can open TSV files, File Viewer Plus allows you to modify the data with various tools similar to those provided by Microsoft Excel. You can also convert TSV files to XLSX, XLS, or CSV formats.
