AD that where listed in the content file ?

Hi oBdA

It does make the change but the output file is of the value before the change ... the objects that are not found in AD ,instead of the output file just showing <> .. can you have it show " Not in AD " ?

You can basically set it to whatever you want, just change the "Expression=" in line 8:
Get-Content -Path "C:\Temp\test.txt" |
	% {
		$Computer = $_
		Try {
			Set-ADComputer -Identity $Computer -Replace @{"employeeType"="X123"} -ErrorAction Stop
			Get-ADComputer -Identity $Computer -Property employeeType -ErrorAction Stop
		} Catch {
			"" | Select-Object -Property @{Name="Name"; Expression={$Computer}}, @{Name="employeeType"; Expression={"Not in AD"}}
		}
	} |
	Select-Object -Property Name, employeeType |
	Export-Csv -NoTypeInformation -Path C:\Temp\test2.csv
