Here is a simple code, check and let me know if it works for you..
$words = (GC C:\input.txt) -join "|"
GC C:\Test.csv | ? {$_-Match $words} | Out-File C:\newfile.csv

Open in new window

Sample C:\input.txt
Test
Text
abc

Open in new window

Code will search any lines which contains Test, Text or abc in C:\Test.csv and out put to C:\newfile.csv

If this doesn't work for you, then provide and sample csv file and the input file..
