Try using Select-Object with the properties you want and Export-CSV instead of ConvertTo-CSV and add –NoTypeInformation

eg  | select property1,property2 | Export-Csv -Path C:\scripts\AD\temp\UPI_OUv2.csv –NoTypeInformation

Those would be the values that you want from the excel file. It is the -NoType Information that removes it from your CSV File

you might be able to get it with just Export-Csv -Path C:\scripts\AD\temp\UPI_OUv2.csv –NoTypeInformation

I do not have Excel files to test with at the moment
