    I'm not sure I understand what you mean. You can indeed export your submission data into CSV, regardless whether exporting submission data from all of your form fields, or exporting data from only some of your form fields.

    The following guide explains how to export data you received through your form into a CSV file:

    If you want to export only some of your form fields into a CSV file, you can temporarily hide all the other fields on the submissions page of your form:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/269-How-to-View-Form-Submissions

    You can see the following screen recording that shows how to show or hide fields on your submissions page, which will also show/hide these fields on the CSV file that you export from your submissions:

    After you have exported only your desired form fields into CSV, I would recommend setting the other fields back to visible.

    If this is not what you were asking about, please provide more information about what it is you are looking for, and we'll be glad to help. Thank you!
