Convert data as CSV problem

Check out this plugin:

http://svn.integralserver.com/plugins/to_csv/

It does all the hard work for you.

Sure. Just do the same things this plugin does. I don't understand why you cannot install the plugin? Rails plugins are installed with the project so if you can edit the project files you can install the plugin.

Here's a simple example of using the CSV module, I'm fairly sure this
comes with the standard distribution of Ruby:

require 'csv'
data = ""

CSV::Writer.generate(data) { |csv|
  csv << ['data_item1,'data_item2']
}

File.open(OUTPUT_FILENAME, 'w') { |file| file << data }

File.open(OUTPUT_FILENAME, 'w') { |file| file << data }

I checked and this is part of the standard library.
