PS 3 unexpected results shown on screen

While my program is running (uses invoke-sql, export-csv) it periodically spits this information out to the console and I do not know what is causing it???

This appears to have been caused by a line that reads:
which is inside a foreach($CSVRecord in $CSV) loop, and $CSV is the result of an invoke-sql statement.

It seems that sometimes the $CSVRecord is NULL and displays the above information, however I thought that was impossible seeing how I was in a foreach loop...

Not at all.  If $CSV is an array which includes elements that are null, then $CSVRecord will sometimes be null.
Best way around this is to filter or perform some validation of the results before they are stored in $CSV.
