    How to Export HSBC to a CSV File

    Exporting on a Phone Using a Web Browser

    You can export a CSV file from HSBC on your phone by accessing the HSBC website through your web browser. This process may require navigating the mobile version of the site and selecting the appropriate options to download your account information in CSV format.

    Exporting on a Tablet, PC, or Laptop

    Using a tablet, PC, or laptop to export a CSV file from HSBC is generally easier than using a phone. The larger screen and more robust interface can simplify the process of selecting the necessary options to export your account data in the desired CSV format.

    After Downloading the CSV File

    Once the CSV file is downloaded and saved on your device, you have the option to email the file to yourself or others. Additionally, you can upload the CSV file to a document portal within the HSBC app, if such a feature is available.
