One quick and dirty way is to output the data into a template then copy/paste the data into a text editor and save as a .csv

  1. Create a template in EE that you'll use to output the data

  2. Add a channel entries tag to get the data, something like this:

    {exp:channel:entries channel="my_channel" limit="999" status="open|closed" dynamic="no} {entry_id}|{status}|{title}|{custom_field}|{grid_field}{grid_field:fieldname1}, {grid_field:fieldname2}{/grid_field} {/exp:channel:entries}

  3. Call up the template in your browser and copy the output.

You'll note that I use pipe separators and commas to separate grid field values in this example. You'll need to modify it to get the format you want.


I would look into using either Export It or AJW Export. I have personally used ajw-export it exports to csv. However you'll need to write sql queries.
