hopefully a simple question with a simple answer....

I Initialise an array, No problems,
$Global:myData = @()

Open in new window

I have an array populated in a loop, no problems.

Open in new window

I add to the array in an inside loop, again no problems
$myUser = Get-QADUser $username | Select Name, Email
$Global:myData += $myUser

Open in new window

I output the array contents, no problem FIRST time through but read on....
$myData | Sort Name | Select Name, Email -Unique

Open in new window

I reinitialise the array and loop back to next itteration...
$Global:myData = @()

Open in new window

Now on the FIRST run through the loop i get output with column names of Name and  Email nicely underlined with the array data below listed nicely. On subsequent iterations of the loop, no column headings show?

How do i force it to show these headers with eacho output of $myData?

I can not see your loops. I can only see { as your second code, and also the 5th and 6th code just a part.

This is not a whole code listing, its the concept.  But easy enough to see the principal surely?

Actually the items probably include the properties, just the formatting on the console is problematic. In this case I suggest to use the
| format-table name, email
at the very end of your expression.
