Good afternoon...I'm a little new to Powershell so need a little advice from those more experienced than me.

I have written a simple import Powershell script to update User objects with information from an extracted CSV taken from our Oracle HR database:

Import-CSV "D:\Oracle\Scripts\TestSource.CSV" -Delimiter "," | Foreach-Object { Get-QADUser $_."mail" | Set-QADUser -description $_."description" -sn $_."sn" -givenName $_."givenName" -telephoneNumber $_."telephoneNumber" -mobile $_."mobile" -title $_."title" -Department $_."Department" -l $_."l" -streetAddress $_."streetAddress" -st $_."st" -ObjectAttributes @{employeeNumber=$_.employeeNumber;postalOfficeBox=$_.postalOfficeBox;comment=$_.comment}}

This works great, updates all the fields that I need..I would like to add something for error handling/reporting and perhaps a log file of all the objects that have been updated to.

Any/all advice and assistance is most welcome.
