verify if *sql* service is on multiple servers


Can someone help me add a catch statement ?  so if a server on the servers.txt file does not have a SQL service
for the output to show the machineName and "N/A" or something relevant .. so I want the output to basically
tell me which servers on the list have a SQL service and which ones do not.

$Computers = Get-Content C:\PS\Servers.txt
Get-Service *sql* -ComputerName $Computers | select Name,status,machineName | sort machineName | Format-Table -autosize

I want to output to a CSV

Here you go:

$Computers = Get-Content C:\PS\servers.txt

$output = @()

foreach ($c in $Computers)
	$services = Get-Service *sql* -ComputerName $c | Select Name, Status
	if ($services -eq $null)
		$cinfo = New-Object PSObject
		$cinfo | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name  "MachineName" -Value $c
		$cinfo | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name  "Name" -Value $null
		$cinfo | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name  "Status" -Value "No SQL Services present"
		$output += $cinfo
		foreach ($s in $services)
			$cinfo = New-Object PSObject
			$cinfo | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name  "MachineName" -Value $c
			$cinfo | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name  "Name" -Value $s.Name
			$cinfo | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name  "Status" -Value $s.Status
			$output += $cinfo
$output | Export-Csv SqlServerSeach.csv  -NoTypeInformation -UseCulture
