how are they getting truncated? Do you mean it's cutting off on the right side?

fl -wrap do not export to CSV file.  when using | fl -wrap export to TXT, it is fine..

when using | select message, it does not display entire messages.  so It must using something.
I tried with Select -expendProperty it doesn't work too.

I think I found the problem.. it was in excel file..

when I open the excel file, the export hides the body of messages.. when I went to column where "message" tab, I double clicked it, and expended. there are the messages.

Thanks for getting back to me.
