But there is really no need to use PowerCLI, you can just Right Click Virtual Machines, in the virtual machines Tab, and select Export List!

and select your header fields to include details you want in the html or csv report!

exportlist
using the vSphere Client!

how about using RV Tools - http://www.robware.net/

it allows you to select a a lot of information, and export to CSV
