PostgreSQL csv import from a MySQL csv export?

Will it work?

MySQL export:

SELECT * INTO OUTFILE 'C:/data.csv'
FIELDS TERMINATED BY '\t' OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"'
ESCAPED BY '\\'
LINES TERMINATED BY '\n'
FROM table;

COPY table FROM 'C:/data.csv' WITH DELIMITER AS '\t' NULL AS '\\N' CSV

There is missing columns for some reason. So I believe there is problem in delimiter. Am I correct, what can I do? I can inspect row with cause error below. But which characters I must look for?

ERROR:  missing data for column "Column21"
CONTEXT: COPY table, line 88219: ...
