multiple table exports in org-mode

I have created an outline view with a few properties, which I edit in table
view. I need to export some of the columns to CSV. This is what I have:
* My Stuff
:ID: MyTable
:COLUMNS: %Col1 %Col2 %Col3 %Col4 %Col5 %Col6
** Stuff
* My Stuff – Table View
#+BEGIN: columnview :id "MyTable"

This all works fine and I can export it to csv, except what I really want in
the Table View is a table with the following format:
:COLUMNS: %Col1 %Col2 %Col3 %Col4

I may have a need to also export a table with yet another format, e. g.
:COLUMNS: %Col1 %Col2 %Col5 %Col6

At the moment, I have different :COLUMN: at the beginning of the file and I
comment out the one I don’t use. This is not exactly ideal. Is there a
better solution to this? Also, I don’t actually work on all the columns at
once, so really if I could define those two columns at the top and then use
the column view on one or the other, that would be fab. But that’s probably
asking too much…

I could export all columns and use the cut command on the csv file to remove
what I don’t need.

Thanks for any ideas!
