    Tab Delimited:

    Two Field are seperated by a TAB

    eg. SANJAY SINGH

    First field is First Name and Second is Sir Name.

    Nth field will be after N -1 tab

    Fixed Length:

    Every field has a fixed starting position and length

    eg. SANJAY SINGH

    Here First field start from Position 1 and has lenght 10 and 2nd field start from 11th postion and has lenght 10.

    Fixed Length -> The lenght of each field is fixed, while in tab delimited the lenght of field is not fixed but we know it ends when the Seperatot (Tab) is encountered.
