Hi,

Is there a way to extract an object name, layer name, coordinates and rotation to CSV or Excel file?

You will have to gather all these pieces of information individually and then write it into a CSV file. You can find samples of all these individual pieces on this forum. If you get stuck on some step feel free to ask, people around here are very helpful.

What do you mean by automatic? When you assemble the pieces of code that we discussed the script would be the automation that you are looking for. Do you mean about a way to get this done without a script?

Thanks for getting back to me Manan. You have not mentioned pieces of code in the first message. I would appreciate if you could give me some key words-ideas and possibly links that I could use to start investigating. 
regards

some key words/ideas would be to select the item, then run the script.

Script could check selected information ex:
docRef.selection[0].position

docRef.selection[0].tags[0].value

...

then use streamWriter to write the .csv
