Add Tab Delimited file as Provider Type

Only CSV file is allowed for imported flat files and not Tab Delimited file.  Tab delimited is a WIDELY used delimiter. Customer is now required to pay their 3rd party to create Comma Delimited instead of tab.

    Doesn't work for me. I am trying to export a tab delimited CSV file and if I use \t as delimiter it just adds the "\t" text between my columns.
