Hi @meerankhan,

below are some steps you can try:

For Microsoft Teams:

  1. Locate the desired file in Microsoft Teams and choose ... > Open > Edit in Teams.
  2. Once the file is open, select File > Save as > Download a Copy.

For Excel Online: Unfortunately, the online version of Excel doesn't support saving files in CSV format.
