Problem exporting custom object to csv

Trying to pull name from Get-Mailbox and a few properties from Get-ActiveSyncDeviceStatistics into a custom object and export to a csv.



$CurrentDate = Get-Date
$CurrentDate = $CurrentDate.ToString('yyyy-MM-dd_hh-mm-ss')
$UserInfo = @{}
$UserList = get-casmailbox -Filter {HasActivesyncDevicePartnership -eq $true -and -not DisplayName -like "CAS_{*"} | Get-Mailbox 
Foreach ($User in $UserList)
{
 $Devices = Get-ActiveSyncDeviceStatistics -Mailbox $User.Alias
 Foreach ($Device in $Devices)
 {
	
   $UserInfo += [pscustomobject]@{Name=$User.alias;DeviceType=$Device.DeviceType;FirstSync=$Device.FirstSyncTime;LastSync=$Device.LastSuccessSync}
  }
}
$UserInfo | Export-CSV -path c:\Scripts\EAS\UserDevices_$CurrentDate.csv -NoTypeInformation

Open in new window


Data exported to Excel 2010
EMS output when  = is used.
EMS output when "$UserInfo   " is usedThis pick shows that I am getting the info needed.

In all cases the eport to csv is the same.

Try this.  It might be enough to just modify line 3, but I also changed line 11.
$CurrentDate = Get-Date
$CurrentDate = $CurrentDate.ToString('yyyy-MM-dd_hh-mm-ss')
$UserInfo = @()
$UserList = get-casmailbox -Filter {HasActivesyncDevicePartnership -eq $true -and -not DisplayName -like "CAS_{*"} | Get-Mailbox 
Foreach ($User in $UserList)
{
 $Devices = Get-ActiveSyncDeviceStatistics -Mailbox $User.Alias
 Foreach ($Device in $Devices)
 {
	
   $UserInfo += $device | Select @{n="Name";e={$User.alias}},DeviceType,@{n="FirstSync";e={$_.FirstSyncTime}},@{n="LastSync";e={$_.LastSuccessSync}}
  }
}
$UserInfo | Export-CSV -path c:\Scripts\EAS\UserDevices_$CurrentDate.csv -NoTypeInformation

Thanks for the quick replay

If I run it with both line changes I receive the following although it does create and fill the CSV with the correct data.
Export-Csv : Cannot bind argument to parameter 'InputObject' because it is null.
At C:\scripts\EAS\UserDevices1.ps1:14 char:23
+ $UserInfo | Export-CSV <<<<  -path c:\Scripts\EAS\UserDevices_$CurrentDate.csv -NoTypeInformation

If I only change line 3 I receive the same CSV with addtional row filled.  Same amount of rows as the run with both line changes.
CSV file
Any ideas on the error?

Unfortunately I can't test but one of the elements of the $userinfo array must be null.  Probably due to the results (or lack thereof) in either $Devices or $UserList.  If you can find it and keep it from being added to $userinfo, that would be good, but you could also filter out any nulls at the end.
$UserInfo | Where {$_}| Export-CSV -path c:\Scripts\EAS\UserDevices_$CurrentDate.csv -NoType
