TAB file extension - Lotus Notes full text index

What is tab file? How to open tab files?

File type specification:

Various data file type icon Various data file type

The tab file extension is associated with Lotus Notes. The tab file contains full text index.

An index file is helpful if records are large: the keys and indexes can be extracted, sorted, and the original file accessed faster than the original file could be rearranged into sorted order. Also if the file needs to be accessed by different keys at the same time, it cannot be sorted by all of them. So a index file is maintained for each different key.
