Tsv column delimiter changer tool What is a tsv column delimiter changer?
This browser-based program changes the column delimiter in Tab Separated Values (TSV) data to any value you want. The original column delimiter in TSV files is the tab character (ASCII code 9) but the new delimiter can be a single character, multiple characters, or even a longer string. Popular single character delimiters for column data are a vertical pipe, a comma, and a dash. Popular multi-character delimiters are "##", "!!" and "~~", and popular longer string delimiters are "-col-" and "-sep-". Tsv-abulous!
Tsv column delimiter changer examples Click to use
Convert TSV Tabs to Vertical Bars
This example converts the default tab separators to vertical bar separators. As the vertical bar separator doesn't appear too often in regular text, it's a great choice for separating data.
foo bar baz
foo|bar|baz

The new delimiter character (or string).
Use Multiple Symbols as Separators
In this example, we change the tab symbol that goes between TSV columns to a hash-hash multi-symbol delimiter. The hash-hash delimiter "##" is a popular separator for tabular data as it's pretty unique.

Separate TSV with Unique Text
This example replaces the TSV tab with unique text "-delim-". It's unlikely this text will ever appear in real TSV files so it's safe to use as a delimiter.
