I have a load of data which I am applying a Sort-Object to, is there a way I can add a row number to the data after the sort. I will be using this to calculate a percentage of the overall work complete...

Infact it would also be useful if I could add a column to the data with average run rates etc based on other columns data... If someone could show me roughly how I could acheive that I should be able to work the rest out... Code so far (coutesy of segwig is...)

$total= 5785
'MAC1,'MAC2','MAC3','MAC4' | %{
$path = "\\$_\Z$\TEST\ROUTE"
$mach = $_
Get-ChildItem $path -include ('initialised.txt') -recurse | Select-Object CreationTime, LastWriteTime, @{Name="Machine";Expression={$mach}} , @{Name="Harness";Expression={($_.Directory -Replace ([regex]::Escape("\\$_\Z$\TEST\ROUTE"),""))}}, @{Name="TotalHarnesses";Expression={$total_harnesses}}, @{Name="RunTime";Expression={"{0:N0}" -f ($_.LastWriteTime - $_.CreationTime).TotalMinutes}}| Where-Object {$_.RunTime -gt 0} | Sort-Object CreationTime 
} # | Export-Csv "C:\MachineLoad.txt"

Open in new window

I'm not sure how the whole "percentage complete" thing is supposed to work, but this should work for adding a row number.  Add the following after the sort to pipe it's output.
| ForEach-Object { $i++; $_ | Add-Member -type noteproperty -name Index -value $i; $_}

Open in new window

You wouldn't be able to then just pipe that to Export-CSV though.  You'd have to save all this data to another variable.  You could then work with that variable to create a new calculated property for average run rates and then output the data.  If I'm understanding what your ouput will be, each row will have a runtime, it couldn't then have an average as well.  What's being averaged?
