How To Export To CSV From Notion: Quick Guide (2024)

January 1, 2024

Notion is a powerful tool that allows you to easily create and manage information and knowledge databases. However, there may be instances where you want to export your data from Notion into other formats, including CSV. CSV (Comma Separated Values) is a simple file format used to store tabular data, such as a spreadsheet or database. This guide will walk you through the process of exporting your Notion data into a CSV file.

1. Open the Page You Want to Export

First, navigate to the Notion page or database you want to export. Keep in mind that only full-page databases can be exported as CSV files.

2. Click on the '...' Icon

On the top right of the page, click on the '...' icon. This will bring up a dropdown menu with various options.

3. Click on 'Export'

From the dropdown menu, select 'Export'. This will open up a new window in the center of your screen with several export options.

4. Select 'Markdown & CSV' Format

In the 'Export Format' dropdown, select 'Markdown & CSV'. If the page you're exporting is a database, the resulting file will be a CSV. Non-database pages will be exported as Markdown files. If you also want to include sub-pages in your export, toggle on the 'Include subpages' option.

5. Confirm Export

Click 'Export' to confirm the operation. Notion will create a ZIP file containing your CSV data and download it to your hard drive.

When to Export CSV From Notion

There are several instances where exporting your Notion data to CSV could be beneficial. Here are a few examples:

  1. Data Transfer: If you're moving your data from Notion to another software or service that accepts CSV files, exporting to CSV will make the transfer process smoother.
  2. Data Backup: Regularly exporting your important Notion databases to CSV can serve as a backup, ensuring you have a local copy of your data.
  3. Data Analysis: CSV files can be imported into many data analysis tools. If you need to analyze or visualize the data from your Notion database, exporting to CSV is a great first step.


How to Export Notion Table to CSV

Notion treats full-page databases as tables, so you can export these to CSV. Follow the same steps outlined above. Just ensure the page you're exporting is a full-page database.

Notion Export to CSV Failed

If your CSV export fails, it could be due to a network issue or a problem with Notion's servers. Try the export again after a while, and if the problem persists, reach out to Notion's support.

Exporting Notion Database to Excel

To export a Notion database to Excel, you need to first export the database as a CSV file. Then, you can easily import the CSV file into Excel.

Remember, Notion is a versatile tool designed to cater to various needs, including data exporting. Understanding how to effectively export your data to CSV files will ensure you can use your data outside Notion when needed.
