Print-out of book titles and authors only

I am trying to print out the Titles and Authors of the books I have in my Calibre Library. Instead of getting just the Titles and Authors the CSV file opens in Excel (which I am not familiar with) and shows all the columns.

This is how I have been trying to do it:
1. I highlighted all the books in the Calibre Library.
2. Clicked on the small arrow right side of Convert Books.
3. Selected Create a Catalogue.
4. In the two tabs that pop up I selected CSV as my Catalogue Format,
when I select this the second tab changes to CSV/XML Options.
5. In Catalogue Title, I typed Title and Author, which is all that I want.

When I open the CSV file it comes up in Excel and shows all the listings information and not just the Titles and Authors.
What am I doing wrong?. Any help will be appreciated.

There are CSV Catalog format options on the second tab for which fields to include.

Excel or Open Office Calc is fairly easy to learn. Print Preview lets yo see the proposed output.

I cannot see any optiions on the second TAB that allows which fields to include. When I look in the second TAB it lists BIB CSV EPUB MOBI and XML. Am I missing something?.

Select CSV in the box you are referring to.

Then look above that, right at the top of the page, next to 'Catalog Options' is a tab labeled 'CSV/XML Options', click that one and select which fields to include in the output.

DUH!! I have just wacked myself on the head in an endeavour to wake me up. Many thanks for steering me in the right direction.
