i have a txt file that i am exporting from Aperture which contains metadata in a "comma delimited tab" format. this means it opens in a text editor looking rather scrambled but i can bring it into numbers in individual cells.


is there a convenient way to do some kind of "comma delimited tab WRAP" command so that i can quickly print this document out in a text editor with each piece of information on a separate line or even each HEADING on one line and then the entry (if any) on the same line?


this way i could print the data out quickly (i think numbers will take a lot of work since i have a lot of these with a lot of different amounts of info) and so i can see it in a format that i can work with (not all jumbled up).



Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4), with 64 bit Win7 in Parallel
