How to Convert Semi-Colon Delimited Files

To convert Semi-Colon Delimited (;) files to Tab Delimited (\t), follow these steps:

  1. Start TextPipe Pro
  2. Add a Search and Replace filter from Filters\Replace\Find exactly
  3. In the Find box, type ';', and in the Replace with box, type '\t' - this is how tab characters are represented
  4. Now drag and drop your file into TextPipe's window and it will appear in the Files List
  5. Click Go (at the base of the window).

To convert Tab Delimited files back to Semi-Colon Delimited, just Replace '\t' with ';' in Step 3. To convert to and from Comma Delimited, just use a ',' instead of '\t'.
