Count on Txt File

Good Morning,

Just a simple request I have a text file that has various header records and I want to be able to do a count on the header record ‘Order Number’.

Then output to a text file and sorted in A to Z with a total at the bottom. Example below

Order Number.        Total

GB088776               10
VB66666.                 12
HF56778.                 6

Total                          28

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.

Assuming the text file is comma seperated (or using another delimiter):
$data = Import-CSV c:\input.csv | Group-Object 'Order Number' | Sort Name
$total =($data.Count | measure-object -Sum).Sum
( Write Output "Order NumnerˋtTotal"
  $data | % { Write-Output "$($_.Name)ˋt$($_.Count)" }
  Write-Output "Totalˋt$total"
) | Out-File C:\output.csv

Corrected script:
$data = Import-CSV C:\input.csv | Group-Object 'Order Number' -NoElement | Sort Name
$total =($data | measure-object Count -Sum).Sum
$( Write-Output "Order Numner`tTotal"
  $data | % { Write-Output "$($_.Name)`t$($_.Count)" }
  Write-Output "Total`t$total"
) | Out-File C:\output.csv
