If I understood you correctly you need to filter products on some parameter and then after filtering export only some of the columns of that products. I suppose that tyou need a couple of such spreadsheets.
There is PC application - Store Manager for Magento with advanced filtering and search options. So particularly, using it you can filter your products on any paramter you need and on any .database column. After you filtered the products you select them and can export them to Excel or .csv file.
Using this you can choose which exactly fields you would like to export, for instance - you can run export first time and export to .csv file only certain columns - e.g. - product name, SKU and price
The second time you run export you can choose other fields you need and you will have those data in .csv file.
