Generally, to redirect the output to file instead of scripting console, use the out-file cmdlet.
For exact usage and info about it, see:

Unless you format the object to work with the Export-Csv cmdlet (Get-Help Export-Csv -Examples), the Out-File cmdlet (Get-Help Out-File -examples), mentioned above, will be your more effective approach.

Set-Location "C:\temp\ee"
$cmd = "SELECT SERVERPROPERTY('ProductVersion') AS Version, SERVERPROPERTY('ProductLevel') as SP"
$set = new-object system.data.dataset
foreach ($svr in get-content "AllServers.txt")
{
  $constr = "server=$svr;database=master;Integrated Security=sspi"
  (new-object System.Data.SqlClient.SqlDataAdapter ($cmd, $constr)).Fill($set) | out-null
  $obj = $set.Tables[0] | select-object @{n = 'Server'; e = {$svr}}, Version, SP 
}
$obj | export-csv -NoTypeInformation "C:\temp\ee\AllServerVersions.csv"

Open in new window

Is one way to do that. $obj would allow for further processing, if needed.
