If you are using Add-Content to construct the CSV, then you can try something like..
$file = "C:\temp.csv"
$date = Get-Date
$Out0 = "---------------VMware Health vCenter2---------------`n---------------------Date and Time---------------------`n--------------------" + $date + "----------------------"
Add-Content $file $date                                  
Add-Content $file $Out0
Add-Content $file ""
Add-Content $file "Data Here"

Open in new window

Yep...
Question:
What is the difference between the `n and Add-Content $file "" ?

`n - is for a new line in PowerShell
If you run Add-Content $file "`n" then it will write "" in a new line (means you get two empty lines before you write "Data Here")


Add-Content $file $Out0
Add-Content $file ""
Add-Content $file "Data Here"


and

Add-Content $file $Out0
Add-Content $file "`nData Here"

Will give the same result..
