And what prevents you from doing so? What's wrong with Writer or any
other text editor?
Even if you manage to load the text file into the calculator component,
you will find out that it does not do what you want it to do.
It is the exact same issue as in the last csv topic ("Date will not
format or sort when imported into calc (ods)").
Base is the most convenient solution to deal with huge collections of
similarly structured text tables.
Instead of File>Open... Type: Text(*.csv), import dialog ... and ending
up with unformatted raw data in a completely useless stand-alone sheet,
you can hit F4 and drag the tsv/csv/abc/xyz data into your sheet
template which resembles the number formats you want to export after
editing. In addition your template may include all the bells and
whistles of a spreadsheet (formulas, conditional formattings, charts).
F4, 2 clicks and a drag&drop. That's all it takes.
