Assuming you've already tried --fields-terminated-by in your import? If not, check out the "Input Parsing Arguments" of the Sqoop user guide.
If you tried that already and are getting an error can you post the error/logs?

Subject: Setting Delimiter in Sqoop
I am importing my data from postgresql to hdfs and I want to seperate each column by tab (\t) . Default settings of sqoop is using "," as delimiter which causes confusion in my mapreduce codes.
Could you please advise me about delimiter option of sqoop? What I want to do is sepearting each column by tab <\t> instead of comma.
Thanks very much.
