ResultsViewer can export images of graphs, but doesn't save to CSV or similar format.

this thread discusses a few workflows to get CSV.

If you just want the tabular data from the htm file EnergyPlus creates, you can copy from most browsers and paste into Excel, or you can request it in another file format at runtime.

You could use SQLite DataBase Browser (opensource, free for Linux and Windows) to read, browse data, and export the data to cvs file format. This way you will have access also to the hidden data structures that ResultsViewer does not display. However the complete data structure is more complex than in ResultsViewer, and some knowledge of SQL is recommended. You cannot however, save any graphs with this tool.
