Tab Separated Values File

TSV stands for Tab Separated Values. Files with the .tsv extension store information in data tables, with each column of data being separated by tabs. The TSV file format allows the data tables to be imported into most spreadsheet applications, allowing for the interchange of spreadsheets between different software applications. The TSV files are similar to CSV files, but tabs instead of commas separate the data.
