Load TAB delimited data via Fastload

I am looking to load TAB delimited data via Fastload. I cannot identify what value to use for TAB.

I have tried the following syntax:

.set record vartext "tab"
set record vartext "tab";
.set record vartext "\t"
set record vartext "\t";

but all result in an invalid syntax error message.

Thanks for any help.

set record vartext " ";
The above syntax is working fine. you have to give a tab between the quotes.

.Set Record Vartest "^"

You hit the tab key where you see the ^ above.

It is sort of WYSIWIG, except in this case it is What you dont see is what you get!
