    {
        $name = date('m_d_Y_H_i_s');
        $filepath = 'export/custom' . $name . '.csv';
        $this->directory->create('export');
        /* Open file */
        $stream = $this->directory->openFile($filepath, 'w+');
        $stream->lock();
        $columns = $this->getColumnHeader();
        foreach ($columns as $column) {
            $header[] = $column;
        }
        /* Write Header */

        foreach ($products as $item) {
            $itemData = [];
            $itemData[] = $item[0];
            $itemData[] = $item[1];
            $itemData[] = $item[2];
            $itemData[] = $item[3];
            $stream->writeCsv($itemData);
        }

        $content = [];
        $content['type'] = 'filename'; // must keep filename
        $content['value'] = $filepath;
        $content['rm'] = '1'; //remove csv from var folder

        $csvfilename = 'Product.csv';
        return $this->_fileFactory->create($csvfilename, $content, DirectoryList::VAR_DIR);
        
    }

    /* Header Columns */
