Export Custom Fields to CSV or XML

Understanding Custom Fields
Custom fields are extra information attached to the post types or custom post types on your WordPress site. They're also known as metadata. Many pieces of data are stored as custom fields, such as a product's price or a real estate property's address. WordPress and other plugins or themes can store custom fields on your site.
Standard custom fields are stored as a key/value pair. The key is essentially the name of that custom field. So, for a real estate property, the custom field storing the street address might have a key of street_address with a value of 123 Main St. You can learn more about custom fields here: https://wordpress.org/support/article/custom-fields/.
