You should try this:

Header("Content-Type: text/plain");
Header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=file.csv");

Then output the text you want to send. Make sure you double-quote it so that the 
newlines work!
$eol = "\n";
echo "Field 1,Field 2,$field_variable,$eol"

......

This sends a stream of info WHEN THE USER DECIDES what to do with it.

That means if they click cancel, the file is not created, and you have no cleanup

Works great!
