  • You can use export to excel option.

  • use export to excel option in ribbon menu


    create a console application that gets the file using the standard URL (see this post) and saves it wherever you want. Otherwise, maybe you can just export it to CSV using PowerShell. See an example here.

  • I need to download the document also not only the metadata associated with the item/document.

    i dont think the export to excel will provide me this.

  • Hi Das,

    Based on your description, you might want to download items as well as documents from a ListViewByQuery web part.

    There is no such API in both SharePoint Object Model or Client Object Model can help to access a ListViewByQuery web part in a page directly like what we can do to a list/library, I would suggest you query/download data from the source library using SharePoint Object Model if the query or filter condition in the ListViewByQuery web part is available to you.

    If there is need to do the job against the ListViewByQuery web part directly, a workaround is that we can use JavaScript to gather the data needed(such as item id, file URL) from HTML source of the web part in a page, then download the related documents to the local machine using Server Object Model.
