I would like to have this script output the contents to an html file, is this possible, or would another script need to be created to perform this?  The contents of this script is:

compare-object (import-csv Export.CSV | sort) (import-csv Exportold.CSV | sort) -passthru -property Mailbox,User,'$_.AccessRights',IsValid |
  % { $obj = $null } {
  if ($obj -and $obj.mailbox -eq $_.mailbox)
  {
    if ($_.SideIndicator -eq '<=') {
      $obj.NewUser         = $_.User
      $obj.NewAccessRights = $_.'$_.AccessRights'
      $obj.NewIsValid      = $_.IsValid
    } else {
      $obj.OldUser         = $_.User
      $obj.OldAccessRights = $_.'$_.AccessRights'
      $obj.OldIsValid      = $_.IsValid
    }
  } else {
    if ($obj) { Write-Output $obj }
    $obj = New-Object PSObject -Property @{
      Mailbox = $_.Mailbox
      NewUser         = $_.User              * ($_.SideIndicator -eq '<=')
      NewAccessRights = $_.'$_.AccessRights' * ($_.SideIndicator -eq '<=')
      NewIsValid      = $_.IsValid           * ($_.SideIndicator -eq '<=')
      OldUser         = $_.User              * ($_.SideIndicator -eq '=>')
      OldAccessRights = $_.'$_.AccessRights' * ($_.SideIndicator -eq '=>')
      OldIsValid      = $_.IsValid           * ($_.SideIndicator -eq '=>')
    }
  }
} {$obj} | select Mailbox, oldUser, OldAccessRights, OldIsValid, newUser, newAccessRights, newIsValid | Export-Csv -NoTypeInformation Difference.csv

Open in new window


I would like the format of the table to be similar to this Picture

Thank you.

You can use ConvertTo-HTML with some formatting in output..

Ref : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff730936.aspx
$a = "<style>"
$a = $a + "BODY{background-color:White;}"
$a = $a + "TABLE{border-width: 1px;border-style: solid;border-color: black;border-collapse: collapse;}"
$a = $a + "TH{border-width: 1px;padding: 0px;border-style: solid;border-color: black;background-color:#0066FF}"
$a = $a + "TD{border-width: 1px;padding: 0px;border-style: solid;border-color: black;background-color:White}"
$a = $a + "</style>"

#(Your code Here>
 
 {$obj} | select Mailbox, oldUser, OldAccessRights, OldIsValid, newUser, newAccessRights, newIsValid |
ConvertTo-HTML -head $a | 
Out-File .\"Test.htm"

Invoke-Expression ".\Test.htm"
