Script to combined execution of Exchange command that will resulted in .csv format

I want to create a script to extract the Exchange information from servers for KAP point of view. I have no. of commands, which we are running over the Exchange Management console to extract the KAP information.

I just want to combine all the command in a single Batch file/Script which we will run once in the exchange server and the entire outcome will come in the Excel format.

It looks like you just about have everything you need.  Have you tried putting this into the Powershell ISE?  You can export the info to a csv using the export-csv command or the out-file.

It could look something like this

out-File -FilePath "somewhere on your hd"

out-File -FilePath "same file" -Append

Although the formatting probably won't be very nice.  All these commands you are running have different columns and output so you may need to rethink of having it in excel.  Play with it a little in the ISE and you should be able to get what you want.

Hope that helps.

I was just working on some account cleanup and took some code to export things to excel from another person.  Hopefully this can get you headed in the right direction.  Here is the code I used:

function SetupExcel()
    LogMessage "Setting up Excel logging" 1
    [void] [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel")
    $Global:Excel = New-Object Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.ApplicationClass
    $Excel.Visible = $true
    $Global:Workbook = $Excel.Workbooks.Add()

    # Setup worksheet for disabled accounts
    $Global:DisabledLog = $Workbook.Worksheets.Item("Sheet2")
    $DisabledLog.Tab.ThemeColor = [Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.XlThemeColor]::xlThemeColorAccent2
    $DisabledLog.Name = "Disabled"
    $DisabledLog.Cells.Item(1, 1).Value2 = "Date"
    $DisabledLog.Cells.Item(1, 2).Value2 = "Name"
    $DisabledLog.Cells.Item(1, 3).Value2 = "Age"
    $DisabledLog.Cells.Item(1, 4).Value2 = "Source Container"
    $DisabledLog.Cells.Item(1, 5).Value2 = "Destination Container"
    $Global:tDisabledRow = 2

    # Setup worksheet for deleted accounts log
    $Global:DeletedLog = $Workbook.Worksheets.Item("Sheet1")
    $DeletedLog.Tab.ThemeColor = [Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.XlThemeColor]::xlThemeColorAccent5
    $DeletedLog.Name = "Deleted"
    $DeletedLog.Cells.Item(1, 1).Value2 = "Date"
    $DeletedLog.Cells.Item(1, 2).Value2 = "Name"
    $DeletedLog.Cells.Item(1, 3).Value2 = "Age"
    $DeletedLog.Cells.Item(1, 4).Value2 = "DN"
    $DeletedLog.Cells.Item(1, 5).Value2 = "Note"
    $Global:tDeletedRow = 2

# Writes an entry to the global variable used to reference the log for disabled accounts
function WriteDisabledEntry([string] $tName, $tAge, [string] $tSourceDn, [string] $tDestinationDn)
    #LogMessage "Writing disabled computer to Excel log: $tName" 1
    #Write-Host "Value of tname is $tName"
    #Write-Host "Value of tage is $tAge"
    #Write-Host "Value of tsourcedn is $tSourceDn"
    #Write-Host "Value of tDestinationDn is $tDestinationDn"
    $tArrContainer = $tSourceDn.Split(",")
    $tContainer = [string]::Join(",", ($tArrContainer | select -Last ($tArrContainer.Length - 1)))
    $DisabledLog.Cells.Item($tDisabledRow, 1).Value2 = [DateTime]::Now.ToString()
    $DisabledLog.Cells.Item($tDisabledRow, 2).Value2 = $tName
    $DisabledLog.Cells.Item($tDisabledRow, 3).Value2 = $tAge
    $DisabledLog.Cells.Item($tDisabledRow, 4).Value2 = $tContainer
    $DisabledLog.Cells.Item($tDisabledRow, 5).Value2 = $tDestinationDn

# Writes an entry to the global variable used to reference the log for deleted accounts 
function WriteDeletedEntry($tName, $tAge, $tDN, $tNote)
    #LogMessage "Writing deleted computer to Excel log: $tName" 1
    #Write-Host "Value of tName is $tName"
    #Write-Host "Value of tAge is $tAge"
    #Write-Host "Value of tDN is $tDN"
    #Write-Host "Value of tNote is $tNote"
    $DeletedLog.Cells.Item($tDeletedRow,1).Value2 = [DateTime]::Now.ToString()
    $DeletedLog.Cells.Item($tDeletedRow,2).Value2 = $tName.ToString()
    $DeletedLog.Cells.Item($tDeletedRow,3).Value2 = $tAge.ToString()
    $DeletedLog.Cells.Item($tDeletedRow,4).Value2 = $tDN.ToString()
    $DeletedLog.Cells.Item($tDeletedRow,5).Value2 = $tNote.ToString()

function CloseExcel()
    # AutoFit the columns

    foreach ($tSheet in $Workbook.Worksheets)
        [Void] $Excel.ActiveCell.CurrentRegion.Columns.AutoFit()
        [Void] $Excel.ActiveCell.CurrentRegion.Select()
        $Global:ListObject = $Excel.ActiveSheet.ListObjects.Add([Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.XlListObjectSourceType]::xlSrcRange, $Excel.ActiveCell.CurrentRegion, $null ,[Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.XlYesNoGuess]::xlYes)
        $ListObject.Name = "TableData"
        $ListObject.TableStyle = "TableStyleLight9"

    LogMessage "Saving and closing Excel workbook" 1
