Tsv column quoter tool What is a tsv column quoter?
This browser-based utility wraps TSV cell values in quotation marks. You can quote all values in all columns or quote values only in the selected columns. To quote all columns, enter the star symbol "*" in the "Columns to Quote" option. To quote specific columns, enter their ordinal positions "1, 2, 5", write it as a range "3-6", or use a combination of range and positions "1, 2-4". The double quotation mark is the default symbol for quoting but you can set it to any other symbol or even multiple symbols. Before quoting, you can remove all leading and trailing spaces using the "Trim Input" option. You can also use two other quick and useful options. The first is for quoting (or not quoting) the titles (the first row of the TSV), and the second is for quoting (or not quoting) already-quoted values. TSVabulous!
Tsv column quoter examples Click to use
Birds, Fishes, Animals
In this example, we quote a tab-separated list of birds, fishes, and terrestrial animals. We add the regular double-quotation marks at the beginning and end of each TSV field. To wrap all columns, we enter the * symbol in the "Columns to Quote" setting. We also enable the "Quote Titles" setting to quote values on the first TSV line.
Bird Fish Animal raven carp lion crow trout bison eagle tuna bear dove shark deer gull bream tiger
"Bird" "Fish" "Animal" "raven" "carp" "lion" "crow" "trout" "bison" "eagle" "tuna" "bear" "dove" "shark" "deer" "gull" "bream" "tiger"

Which columns to quote?
Antonyms TSV
This example uses the hash symbol as a quote character and adds it around tab-delimited antonyms. It wraps the words in hashes only on the first and third columns. This is done by indicating their ordinal numbers "1, 3" in the option that controls which columns to quote. Since this TSV file doesn't use titles for the columns and data starts on the first line, we have enabled the option to quote titles, which in this case means quoting words on the first row.
child — adult dark — light night — day early — late false — true hard — easy large — small more — less

Books TSV
In this example, we wrap information about books in single quotation marks. As you can see, some of the input values are already enclosed in quotes. To avoid duplicate quoting, we have disabled the "Quote Quoted Fields" option. To select only the book titles and authors, we use the range format "2-3" to cover the second and third TSV columns, and turn off the mode that quotes the header row (first row) to leave "Year", "Book Name", "Author" unchanged.
Year Book Name Author 1851 Moby Dick Herman Melville 1847 Jane Eyre Charlotte Bronte 1897 'Dracula' Bram Stoker 1925 The Trial Franz Kafka 1819 'Ivanhoe' Walter Scott 1954 Lucky Jim Kingsley Amis
