PowerShell - Move errors to file

Dear Experts,

I have been running this command to remove users from a certain Active Directory group, basically their names are listed in a .csv file column and from there imported, then for each the command executed and putting the errors to a .txt file:

Import-Csv C:\users\z.cseh\desktop\displaynames.csv | ForEach {remove-adgroupmember -Identi
ty "Users" -Member $_.displayname -Confirm:$false} 2>> c:\users\z.cseh\desktop\DisplayNamesErr.txt

In general that works fine, but relating the errors the issue is that it puts to the .txt file when error happens, but not showing at which .csv line or at which users. Always just repeating this pattern:

Could you please advise how to parameterise somehow to show at least at which .csv line the error happened?

Try this code.. DisplayNamesErr.csv will have the details of error..
Import-Csv C:\users\z.cseh\desktop\displaynames.csv | ForEach {
$Group = $_.displayname
remove-adgroupmember -Identity "Users" -Member $Group -Confirm:$false -EA Stop
	New-Object PSobject -Property @{
	GroupName = $Group
	Error = $_.exception.message
} | Export-Csv c:\users\z.cseh\desktop\DisplayNamesErr.csv -nti

Open in new window
