Simple; does exactly what’s intended on the first try. Wish I had found this sooner. I’ve made many an awkward template to churn out a CSV; this is a big timesaver.

ZealousWeb did an awesome job writing this add-on.  It’s the only one of it’s kind that includes basically every entry and saved myself tons of time sifting though my database to extract entries.  Just install, choose what channel you want to export and boom! There it is, an XML or CSV file!
