Combining Two Powershell Scripts Not Working

I have 2 Powershell scripts that I want to combine into one.  However when I do so, it doesn't appear to complete the script and hangs at the html conversion portion.  I'm assuming I can't just copy/paste the 2 scripts together.  The two work individually without issue, just for simplicity, i'd like to combine them and make it a scheduled task.  I'm a powershell novice, so I'd need the full script. Thanks in advance.

# Script to report Calendar Permissions for All mailbox and Email
# Get the mailboxes
$Mailboxes = Get-Mailbox -Filter {RecipientTypeDetails -eq "UserMailbox"} -ResultSize Unlimited
# An array for the output
$Output = @()
# Loop through the mailboxes
ForEach ($Mailbox in $Mailboxes) {
 # Get the name of the calendar folder
 $Calendar = (($Mailbox.PrimarySmtpAddress.ToString())+ ":\" + (Get-MailboxFolderStatistics -Identity $Mailbox.DistinguishedName -FolderScope Calendar | Select-Object -First 1).Name)
 # Get the permissions on the folder
 $Permissions = Get-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity $Calendar
 # Loop through the permissions, populating the output array
 ForEach ($Permission in $Permissions) {
  $Permission | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Mailbox" -value $Mailbox.DisplayName
  $Output = $Output + $Permission
# Write the output to a CSV file
$Output | Sort-Object Mailbox, User | Select-Object Mailbox, User, {$_.AccessRights}, IsValid | Export-Csv -Path "C:\scripts\CalPermissionsReport\$(Get-Date -Format yyyyMMdd)CalPermissions.csv" -NoTypeInformation

Does adding path to input files (line 27) make any difference?
compare-object (import-csv "C:\scripts\CalPermissionsReport\$(get-date -f yyyyMMdd)calpermissions.csv" | sort-object Mailbox, User) (import-csv "C:\scripts\CalPermissionsReport\$("{0:yyyyMMdd}" -f (get-date).AddDays(-1))calpermissions.csv" | sort-object Mailbox, User) -passthru -property Mailbox,User,'$_.AccessRights',IsValid |
