Powershell foreach-object, supply values for the following parameters

I am trying to run this command:
Import-Csv $sourceMachinesList | ForEach-Object
{
      # some code
}

I get no error messages, but I do get this message asking for a parameter
"cmdlet ForEach-Object at command pipeline position 2
Supply values for the following parameters:

Is this a large file? If so it is a known bug.

Is it really a CSV file?

No it only has two lines, a column title and one row item.

Is it safe to say that $sourceMachinesList is the full name/path of the csv file?

Does it work without foreach-object?

duh!

the first { needs to be next to the foreach-object

Import-Csv $sourceMachinesList | ForEach-Object {
      # some code
}

btw... if you want to keep your orginal format you can escape the EOL like this

Import-Csv $sourceMachinesList | ForEach-Object `
{
      # some code
}
