An awky approach would be:
Awk -f "\" { print $1, "\t",$3.....}'
But then again awk is a unix tool. A gnu windows version can be found on inet.

Subject: [tpm] eliminating columns from tab delimited files

Hello All,

does anyone have a quick way of eliminating certain columns from a tab-delimited file.

the way I approached this problem in the past is by reading a line from the file and splitting the contents based on tabs into an array
and then writing to a new file only the array elements that I needed.
