What does the # sign mean in my internal table?

I downloaded a file into an internal table as ASCII, I get # signs? What does this mean exactly? Thank-You.

  1. sign is an ASCII code replacement for the Horizontal Tab in your file. The ABAP equivalent for it is CL_ABAP_CHAR_UTILITIES=>HORIZONTAL_TAB

Hence to get the individual columns from a line separated by # use SPLIT AT CL_ABAP_CHAR_UTILITIES=>HORIZONTAL_TAB and it should help.
