How to export metadata to CSV

I'm looking for guidance on the best way to export basic metadata to a .CSV file from Bridge. I don't know anything about command line, so I'm trying to avoid using exiftool, a resource that's been recommended for this issue previously. I'd rather avoid having to teach myself how to troubleshoot an entire additional skillset. 

The big issue I'm running into is my keywords are divided under sub-headings (so it will read Locations > Honduras > Tegucigalpa) and when I try to export using Lightroom, all it picks up is "Locations" with no information further down. I would prefer the export to include subheadings by kind of any means, so if that means it just reads "Tegucigalpa" or it reads the full path, either is fine, I'm just trying to avoid giving myself more work on this export.

 

Thanks for the help!

Some options here:

Can you go to File > File Info > Raw Data and copy/paste the XML block containing your keywords? It sounds like they are hierarchical, not flat.
