Try the following:
import-csv H:\filecsv.csv | Sort-Object version -Descending | ft -AutoSize

your source data does not match with the resultant data what you require  as per your question.

Or try: import-csv H:\filecsv.csv | Sort-Object Product, version -Descending | ft -AutoSize

The above code works if you replace all the ; with commas

marahman3001,

don't use format-* if exporting to CSV. The format cmdlets convert anything into a single string per line, destroying object structure and properties.
And *-csv has a delimiter parameter to tell which one to use ;-).


Mandy_,

I'm not certain about the proper order of rows you demand, but I would go with
(import-csv -delimter ';' file.csv | sort product, version -descending |
   converto-csv -notype -delimiter ';') -replace '"' | out-file result.csv

Open in new window

export-csv and convertto-csv add double quotes to each field, so we have to remove those to keep the original format.

It's short form for format-table
Autosize displays the data in columns with automatic width according to the data

I guess your input data sample is not matching with the output you require. There must be error in typo etc.
Eg. Msxc2010  it's not in your output

Mandy_,

If something does not work for you, please tell us what did not work - e.g. list the expected result and what you got instead. And it is always a good idea to mention which post you refer to.
