Greeting Experts,

      I am looking for a PowerShell script to import excel.csv file over to a Microsoft SQL 2012 Express database. The file is labeled with the following below.  The excel file is identified by the date on the end “02-10-2014s” of each file. What I am looking for is to identify the name of the file and select it based on the date at the end of the file name…. does anybody have a script that can do this process…

Name of File:
JT_VSE__Summary_of_Threats_Detected_in_the_Last_24_Hour_02-10-2014s.csv”

Something like this?
get-item -path *.csv | where-object {$_.pschildname -match "_\d{2}\-\d{2}\-\d{4}"}

I'm not clear about your goal here. Do you want to have
a) all files matching a date pattern style in their filename (as aikimark demonstrated)
b) a single file matching exactly one specific date?

And as soon as you have that file, what to do?

I looking for a script that will scan a file directory with the file name " JT_VSE__Summary_of_Threats_Detected_in_the_Last_24_Hour_MM-dd-YYYY.csv" and choose the one it needs from the date on the end of the file name... i.e. the current date...

dir "C:\Temp\EE\ JT_VSE__Summary_of_Threats_Detected_in_the_Last_24_Hour_$(get-date -format 'MM-dd-yyyy').csv"

Open in new window

Where/how does the trailing "s" come into play?

Yes, that is what I am looking for Qlemo... I just need to set it up in a way that I can give the script name of the server, Database, and Table name... so it can upload everything for just that day only and stop.

Sorry for replying back so late... thank you for your help...

The Trailing "s" on the end of the file is part of the name of the file that is created by the Vender software. when it creates the reports everyday..

You'll have to make sure the target table has (at least) all the columns contained in the CSV file.
I will show a solution based on code of Hey, Scripting Guy.
$Instance = 'mssql\express'
$Database = 'ThreatsDB'
$table    = 'Threats'
# Use the following for SQL Server Authentication instead of Windows Authentication
# $User = 'User1'
# $Pwd  = 'Pwd1'
$Data = Import-CSV "C:\Temp\EE\JT_VSE__Summary_of_Threats_Detected_in_the_Last_24_Hour_$(get-date -format 'MM-dd-yyyy').csv"

Open in new window

You should have to change nothing more than the vars at the very beginning of the script.
