I have a script that for what I am doing works fine. I wanted to make it a little more useful and added an import, and 'for each' section.
it outputs to CSV. The name of the file is getting a bunch of extra characters.
import-CSV C:\scripts\get-folder-permissions\servers.csv |
foreach-object {./get-perms.ps1 -ComputerName $_.name  | Export-Csv -Path "D:\$_.name-Permission.csv" -NoTypeInformation
}

Open in new window

the called dscript get-perms, works just fine. I get a file where I want it, with the data I want, but the name is
@{name=servername01}.name-Permission.csv.
Is this an easy fix?

In a string, you just need to use a subexpression to reference the object property.
"D:\$($_.name)-Permission.csv"
