TestStand supports RFC 4180 for representing Tab Delimited Text. Tab delimited text is a delimited data format that has fields/columns separated by the tab character and records/rows terminated by new lines.

Any field may be optionally enclosed with double-quote characters. However, the following fields must be enclosed with double-quote characters:

  • Fields with embedded tabs or double-quote characters
  • Fields with embedded line breaks
  • Fields with leading and trailing spaces
Note Note  Each of the embedded double-quote characters must be represented by a pair of double-quote characters.

See the Property Loader Plugins - File Formats topic for more information about the required file structure for this plugin.
