Change Powershell Script Output Format

Hi there,

I´ve written a Powershell script that gives me back the installed OS, installed service pack, processor architecture and shows of SNMP installed or not. This script works for me so far, but the output in a textfile is not like I would need it to be (I want to import it to Excel).

Can someone point out what needs to be changed to get a good table-based output?
Code is attatched, the script is started as ./getos.ps1 >> "D:\testscript.txt"

Regards
Steffen

$arrComputers = get-Content -path "c:\servers.txt"

foreach ($strComputer in $arrComputers)
{
 $collItems = Get-WmiObject -class "Win32_OperatingSystem" -namespace "root\CIMV2" -computername $strComputer
 foreach ($objItem in $collItems)
 {
   "Computer Name: ;" + $strComputer
   "Operating System: ;" + $objItem.Caption
   "Servicepack: ;" + $objItem.ServicePackMajorVersion
   " "
 }
 
 $collSNMP = Get-WmiObject -class "Win32_service" -namespace "root\CIMV2" -computername $strComputer | Where-Object {$_.Name -eq "SNMP"}
 foreach ($objItem in $collSNMP)
 {
   "SNMP: ;" + $objItem.Name
   
  " "
 }
 
 $collProcArch = Get-WmiObject -class "Win32_processor" -namespace "root\CIMV2" -computername $strComputer | Select-Object Caption
 foreach ($objItem in $collProcArch)
 {
  "Architecture: ;" + $objItem.Caption
   }
  " " 
  "--------------------------------------------------------------"
}

This will give you a CSV file, which will pop open in Excel nicely enough.

Get-Content -path "c:\servers.txt" | ForEach-Object {

  $ComputerName = $_

  Get-WmiObject Win32_OperatingSystem -ComputerName $ComputerName | Select-Object `
    @{n='Computer Name';e={ $ComputerName }},
    @{n='Operating System';e={ $_.Caption }},
    @{n='Servicepack';e={ $_.ServicePackMajorVersion }},
    @{n='SNMP';e={ Get-WmiObject Win32_service -ComputerName $ComputerName -Filter "Name='SNMP'" | Select-Object -ExpandProperty Name }},
    @{n='Architecture';e={ Get-WmiObject Win32_Processor -ComputerName $ComputerName | Select-Object -ExpandProperty Caption }}

} | Export-Csv "testscript.csv" -NoTypeInformation
