The colunDelimiter will not. in and of itself, extract, say, the third item of all the lines in a tab and return formatted dataSet. DataGrids have this sort of functionality built-in, but that is still constructed from standard LC techniques.
As per the above, if you wanted that third item all down the table, you have to loop through each line and dig it out, as others have already said.

What Mike said.  It's somewhat confusing since there is a
"columndelimiter"
property which is set to tab by default but it seems to only
be used in
conjunction with the split command.
