Download csv file in magento 2

The above code create the csv file with required fields and download the file. The last return array was necessary for downloading the file. You can use ‘rm’ key value as false. If the value is false then the file will not be deleted, remains in temp location.

Magento 2 export fields enclosure

In the above export, I have exported only three fields ‘created_at’, ‘increment_id’, ‘grand_total’ from the order object. You can extend the export with
other fields in order object. To see all data in order object put

print_r($orderdata->getData()); exit; 

By doing this you can see all data of one order. Extend the export fields from the array data.

Export products magento 2

In the above mentioned same way you can do the magento 2 custom csv export of products by using the products instead of order collection factory.
