Powershell Output help

I have wriiten the following SQL script to execute using powershell.

 
  cls
foreach ($svr in get-content "demo.txt")
{
  $con = "server=MC1-PQ10X.RF.LILLY.COM\SQL01;database=mylilly_WSS_Content_INCTSK0014840;Integrated Security=sspi" 

  $cmd = "SELECT
Docs.DirName + '/' + Docs.LeafName AS 'Item Name',
DocVersions.UIVersion, 
(DocVersions.UIVersion/512) as Version_Label, DocVersions.Level, DocVersions.TimeCreated
FROM DocVersions FULL OUTER JOIN Docs ON Docs.Id = DocVersions.Id
--   INNER JOIN Webs On Docs.WebId = Webs.Id
--INNER JOIN Sites ON Webs.SiteId = SItes.Id
WHERE (DirName LIKE '%globalcontentrepository%')
AND (IsCurrentVersion = '0')
AND (DocVersions.Id IN ('$svr'))"

  $da = new-object System.Data.SqlClient.SqlDataAdapter ($cmd, $con)

  $dt = new-object System.Data.DataTable

  $da.fill($dt) |out-null

  $dt | Export-Csv music.csv -Encoding ascii -NoTypeInformation

 }

Open in new window


The problem I'm facing with the above code is regarding the output. For every $svr, this code is creating a new csv file. The input file is containing around 1000 inputs. My requirement is that all the output should get stored in the csv file at once rather than creating new file.

Please look into this. Kindly give your suggestions.
Thanks in advance

There are two ways to do that.
Change lines 23-25 to
  $data += @($dt) 
)
$data | Export-Csv music.csv -Encoding ascii -NoType

Open in new window

or embed the foreach in a subexpression and export the pipeline:
$(foreach # as in your code... 
  $dt
)) | Export-Csv music.csv -Encoding ascii -NoType

Open in new window

Hello Qlemo,

Thanks for your inputs.
It's working perfectly. I need one more help. Actually the output that I'm getting is more than 2 Lakhs. I want to open this output in excel for auditing.
Is there anyway I can break the output and create different excel files, when a certain limit is reached.
Kindly guide me in this matter.
Thanks again

That needs some effort. We can limit on number of lines.

Hello Qlemo,

Thanks for replying again.

No problem, I'll figure out something.

Can you please tell me when to clear the data variable after the execution is done?
Since for some input id's there are no entries in the table I'm querying and I want to make sure the data table is cleared everytime I provide this a fresh set of input id's.

Please look into this.

Thanks and Regards,
Abhinav Singh

$data needs to get cleared before foreach, e.g. by assigning an empty array:
 $data = @()
You do not need that if you call the script again for each set of IDs, because the scope of vars is restricted to the script or function they are first defined in by default.
However, I cannot see how you would use this script for different ID sets. You would have to change the input file. But (#2) that is not part of this question anyway.

Here is how to split output into different files based on lines contained. $maxlines is the limit used, here 100 lines
$maxlines = 100
for ($offs = 0; $offs -lt $data.Count; $offs += $maxlines) {
  $data[$offs..($offs+maxlines-1)] | convertTo-CSV -NoType -Encoding ASCII ('music {0:D2}.csv' -f $offs/$maxlines+1)
}
