error on cmd split when dbname contains _

Hello,

When I try to execute the following command, an error occurs if dbname contains _ :
$LIST_DBM = (&sqlcmd -E -S $server -d master -h -1 -W -b -Q " set nocount on;SELECT DB_NAME(database_id) +'|'+ mirroring_role_desc +'|'+ mirroring_state_desc FROM sys.database_mirroring WHERE mirroring_guid IS NOT NULL;")


$DB_NAME = $LIST_DB.split("|")[0]

Method invocation failed because [System.Object[]] doesn't contain a method named 'split'.

How can I resolve this problem?

Thanks

I don't think that the value of $DB_NAME containing a underscore is the problem.  What the error is saying is that $DB_NAME is an array, not a string, and thus the split method doesn't exist for an array.  If it is an array of strings, you could apply a foreach loop to use the split method on each element of the array.

Hello,

I try this :

  foreach ( $dbmirr in $LIST_DBM ) {
      $array_str = $LIST_DBM[$dbmirr].split("|")
      $DB_NAME = $array_str[0]
      $MIRR_ROLE_DESC = $array_str[1]
      $MIRR_STATE_DESC = $array_str[2
}
The following error is returned :
You cannot call a method on a null-valued expression.
$array_str = $LIST_DBM[$dbmirr].split("|")

How about this?
foreach ( $dbmirr in $LIST_DBM ) {
      $array_str = $dbmirr.split("|")
      $DB_NAME = $array_str[0]
      $MIRR_ROLE_DESC = $array_str[1]
      $MIRR_STATE_DESC = $array_str[2
}
