What is

These files are used for storing and distributing data in a special tab separated format such that the data in the columns are separated using the help of tabs. These files are very similar to the Comma Separated Files.
In the data in the columns are separated by the help of commas instead of tabs like in the TSV files.
These files are saved in plain ASCII text format and can be opened or edited with the help of any standard text editor such as Notepad or WordPad.
These files can be exported to several spreadsheet programs such as Microsoft Excel and are more often saved with the extension .TSV but .TAB is also used occasionally.
