I desperately need to export my data from Numbers into a text tab delimited format.  I have searched and found nothing.  It seems Numbers won't allow you to do this, is that true or have I overlooked it.  Thanks.

Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    Numbers can export to a CSV (Comma Separate Values) file.  If a Tab delimited file is essential then you can export from Numbers to CSV, then open the CSV file in your frorite text editor and perform a search/replace such you you locate all commas and replace tham with Tabs.

    If you copy a Numbers table and paste it into a plain text document (in TextEdit, for example), it will be a tab delimited format.

    Good point Jeff.  I tried and even pasting into a new mail message works-- convenient since I have mail open all the time.
