I have this powershell command that read a text file for Quickbook Web Connector log and search for a specific text "No data to exchange for the application"  :

Output command:

PS C:\Users\ch> Get-Content C:\Users\ch\Documents\test.txt | select-string "No data to exchange for the application"| Se
lect-Object -last 1

20140801.15:14:14 UTC    : QBWebConnector.WebServiceManager.DoUpdateSelected() : No data to exchange for the
application:  www.abc.com - QB Financial Web Connector
I need to create a script that run every 3 Hours and compare the date and time if the last result was 3 Hours from the current time and send an email like an alert.

For Example:

The script need to check for the last result " See output above"  date and time "20140801.15:14:14 UTC....."  with the current time (when the script run) 20140801.18:14:14 and if it's more than > 3 Hours send an email with the results with the output .

Let me know if this is possible.

Thank you.
