How to query a service from computers file

I have a CSV file with lots of servers: Server.csv and header "name". I want to read the file and query for a service and eventually produce a csv with computer name and name of the service I am looking for and a list of the computer where the nxlog service does not exist

$CORP_SERVERS = Import-CSV c:\scripts\CORP_Servers.csv
foreach($CorpServer in ${ get-service nxlog -ComputerName $ } | Select $

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try this:
Import-CSV c:\scripts\CORP_Servers.csv | ForEach-Object {
	$ComputerName = $_.Name
	Write-Host "Processing $($ComputerName) ..."
	$(Try {
		Get-Service nxlog -ComputerName $ComputerName -ErrorAction Stop
	} Catch {
		$_.Exception.Message | Select-Object -Property @{n='Error'; e={$_}}
	}) | Select-Object -Property @{n='ComputerName'; e={$ComputerName}}, Name, DisplayName, Status, Error
} | Export-Csv -NoTypeInformation -Path C:\Temp\nxlog.csv
