    you could read csv file into a datatable and then save results of the function to a particular column of a datatable and then write datatable to another csv

    Start-Transcript, Set-PsDebug and Set-TraceSource do not support CSV files. Since those are debugging commands, the use of a CSV file would be questionable - the output isn't formatted in any way.

    Of course you can create a CSV file from the generated transcript any time.
