How can I get this to display on one line with commas in the numbers?
write-host Processing Record# $recnum of $TotalRecordCount

I've only found examples like this:

I do not know how to use those examples inline with text, only on single lines.
thanks

It depends on where you're using it but generally you would insert something like this:

("{0:N0}" -f $a)

Open in new window

$a can be any variable that contains a number or you can just write the number itself.

Simply use
write-host ("Processing Record# {0:N0} of {1:N0}" -f $recnum, $TotalRecordCount)

Open in new window

$numbers = $recnum, $TotalRecordCount

"Processing  Record# {0:N0} of {1:N0} " -f $numbers

The write-host example is what I need, and the $numbers examples is cool - I did not know we could do that. The write-host example is also like C code too which is another help. The $numbers example is a little beyond how I currently think- putting 2 numbers into one number, which I'm guessing is a PS object which explains why it works.
THANK YOU!
