FAQ: How do I save my spreadsheet as a Tab Delimited File?

DigThisData no longer supports uploading via TSV files. Use CSV instead.

For Excel:

  • Make certain you are on the first Sheet
  • Click File (or the Office Button) → Save As.
  • Change Save as type: to “Text (Tab delimited) (*.txt)”.
  • Enter “Customers” or "Products" as a file name and save the file.
  • Change the filename extension from .txt to .tsv

For Google Sheets

  • Make certain you are on the first Sheet
  • Click File → Download As
  • Select "Tab-Separated values (*.tsv, current sheet)
  • Enter “Customers.tsv” or "Products.tsv" as a file name and save the file.
