Open TAB File

Files with a TAB extension are tab-delimited data or text files. This means that they contain tab separated values, similar to CSV files (comma separated).

Creating a TAB file can be very easy, using Notepad. After adding your data, separated by tabs in Notepad, save the file with a TAB extension instead of a TXT.

This represents a fast and efficient way to store input received from the front-end without the need for a database, ideal for software developers. Tab spaces act as column separators.

For large volumes of information they are not suitable, because they can become somewhat difficult to handle.

Some programs, however, can efficiently handle the data in a TAB file, such as MapInfo, which uses them to store data from the graphic information system (GIS).
