Need a tab character to line up data

I am trying to write a formatted file with various data extracted by my script. What I want is quite simple but I can’t find any documentation on how to do it in Applescript. I’m looking for the equivalent of ‘t’ for a tab character so I can line up my columns of data. TIA.

You can simply use ‘tab’.

set foo to “Column 1” & tab & “Column 2” & tab & “Column 3”

Cool! Thanks.
