What Is a CSV to TSV Converter?

This tool transforms Comma Separated Values (CSV) data to Tab Separated Values (TSV) data. Both CSV and TSV are popular file formats for storing tabular data but they use different delimiters to separate values – CSV uses commas (","), while TSV uses tabs ("\t"). If we compare CSV files to TSV files, then CSV files are much harder to parse than TSV files because the values themselves may contain commas, so it's not always obvious where one field starts and ends without complicated parsing rules. TSV, on the other hand, uses just a tab symbol, which doesn't usually appear in data, so separating fields in TSV is as simple as splitting the input by the tab character. To convert CSV to TSV, simply input the CSV data in the input of this tool. In rare cases when a CSV file has a delimiter other than a comma, you can specify the current delimiter in the options of the tool. You can also specify the current quote character and the comment start character. Additionally, empty CSV lines can be skipped by activating the "Ignore Lines with No Data" option. If this option is off, then empty lines in the CSV are converted to empty TSV lines. The "Preserve Headers" option allows you to choose whether to process column headers of a CSV file. If the option is selected, then the resulting TSV file will include the first row of the input CSV file, which contains the column names. Alternatively, if the headers option is not selected, the first row will be skipped during the data conversion process. For the reverse conversion from TSV to CSV, you can use our Convert TSV to CSV tool. Csv-abulous!

Convert Game Data from the CSV Format to the TSV Format

In this example, we transform a Comma Separated Values (CSV) file containing a leaderboard of gaming data into a Tab Separated Values (TSV) file. The input data shows the players' names, scores, times, and goals. We preserve the CSV column headers by enabling the "Preserve Headers" option and convert all data rows into TSV format. The resulting data is easier to work with as it's organized in neat columns.

player_name,score,time,goals ToniJackson,2500,30:00,15 HenryDalton,1800,25:00,12 DavidLee,3200,40:00,20 EmmaJones,2100,35:00,17 KrisDavis,1500,20:00,10

Mythical Creatures

This example converts a CSV file containing information about mythical creatures to a TSV file. The original data uses semicolons ";" as non-standard delimiters and includes empty lines and comments marked with '#'. In the options, we specify the exact format of the input CSV and transform the data into TSV. We also skip the column title values and the output TSV now contains just the data.

Convet Fitness Tracker Data from CSV to TSV

In this example, we convert CSV data from a fitness tracker that includes steps, distance, and calories into the TSV format. As there are several empty lines in the input CSV, we enable the option to ignore these empty lines. Additionally, we enable the option to preserve headers on the first data row. As the input CSV uses the standard format, we keep all other values as default.

day,steps,distance,calories Mon,7500,3.75,270 Tue,12000,6.00,420 Wed,8000,4.00,300 Thu,9500,4.75,330 Fri,10000,5.00,350
