      I'm not sure exactly what you are trying to do, but you can filter the data into .csv format using php and then dynamically create a file on the server that can be downloaded.

    <?PHP function cleanData(&) 
      = preg_replace("/t/", "t", );
      = preg_replace("/r?n/", "n", );
     if(strstr(, '"'))  = '"' . str_replace('"', '""', ) . '"';
    # filename for download
     = "website_data_" . date('Ymd') . ".xls";
    header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=""");
    header("Content-Type: application/"); 
    0 = false; 
    foreach( as ) 
     # display field/column names as first row 
     echo implode("t", array_keys()) . "rn";
     0 = true;
    array_walk(, 'cleanData'); 
    echo implode("t", array_values()) . "rn";
