If I understand you correctly, you have PHP code (lets call it
makecsv.php) that makes a CSV file and returns it to the user.  When
the user visits the script makecsv.php you want them to be prompted to
save the CSV file you just generated.  If that is what you meant, this
is not a JavaScript thing.  Just set the Content-type and
Content-Disposition headers in your PHP script.  The browser will then
bring up a "Save as" dialog box when it receives the output from the
script.  http://us.php.net/manual/en/function.header.php

header('Content-type: text/csv');
header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="file.csv"');
echo 'field1,field2,field3,field4';
