tab = Array[a, {5, 4}]

To drop the first column

tab2 = Rest /@ tab

To drop the first two columns

tab3 = Drop[#, 2] & /@ tab

To drop the third column

tab4 = Drop[#, {3}] & /@ tab

To drop the last column

tab5 = Most /@ tab

Hi 

I want to import data from a tsv-file to a Table in Mathematica, without the first column of the tsv-file. What should I write to do this? 

Alternatively I can import the whole tsv-file and then drop the first column from my Mathematica-Table.. but I don't know how to do the "drop column" part.
