  1. There’s no API call for exporting a table as CSV right? (couldn’t find it in API documentation)

  2. Has anyone written a script that mimic that functionality by iterating through all the records, replacing linked record IDs with names, and then, generating said CSV? If not, I’ll work on writing one…

Hey all, if you’re finding this thread while looking for “normal backups” as Tuur was referencing earlier in the thread, we’ve built a way to do external backups for Airtable automatically to address the need directly.

So if that kind of backups are a priority for you, check out the show and tell here: How to set up automatic external backups for Airtable in 20 minutes

Hope that helps!

Hi @Tuur! I’m looking for a similar solution, but it’s not for backups. I need to export a CSV from AirTable in order to pass data into another program (Vantage) which is not supported by Zapier. Do you have any tips?

Thanks!

Tuur, could you also share it with me please? :slightly_smiling_face: Thanks in advance!

I have a page here - https://www.pagemonk.com/export which I use for downloading CSV files. Are you looking for the same thing via API?

@Tuur Could I i please have access to the script you wrote for auto exporting CSVs? It would be immensely helpful!

Hi @Tuur please can I go for it too? I have been wrestling with Zapier into Zoho / Excel and its just too much of a workaround compared what I can see being discussed here…
Would be forever grateful - Thanks

@Tuur - can you send me the export script you’ve written. Thanks!
