Try this:

* Export table from src-block

#+name: mytable
| a | b |
| 1 | 2 |
| 3 | 4 |

#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
  (org-open-link-from-string "[[mytable]]")
  (while (not (org-table-p)) (forward-line))
  (org-table-export "mytable.csv" "orgtbl-to-csv"))
: Export done.

cat mytable.csv
: a,b
: 1,2
: 3,4
