I have an array of names in a variable. When I export to csv the names just come out as a list of numbers. How can I get the list to show up as the names?

$here = "jason","nicole","callie"
$DesktopPath = [Environment]::GetFolderPath("Desktop")
$here | Export-Csv -path $DesktopPath\names.csv -notype


It comes out as Length

You should just use Out-File instead of Expert-CSV if you want to store string arrays in a file.
A single-column files isn't really a CSV ;-).
