What is a tab file?

A TAB (Tab Separated Data File) is a data file that includes tabbed data. A TAB file contains columns of information that are separated by tabs. The TAB format is somewhat obscure; the file extension TSV is more frequently used to denote this type of file.  TAB files are text-based and are supported by all text editing programs. TAB files are supported by both the Mac and Windows operating systems. TAB files can also be imported into a spreadsheet program, such as Microsoft Excel (XLS), which will automatically reformat the tabbed data into cells.
