Hello all,

I am working in a little project that involves reading a csv file, query ad against the csv file and set the the right values in AD.

Through the code I have captured the following values


$InputLastName = Read-Host 'Type the new Last Name:'
$NewLastName = Read-Host 'Are you sure, you want to replace the following lastname "$($" by $($InputLastName) (Y/N)'

So, when I ask the question: 'Are you sure, you want to replace the following lastname "$($" by $($InputLastName) (Y/N)',

So, not sure how to echo the values previously captured on $ and $InputLastName in the Read-Host statement

Thanks for your help,
