Hello experts,

I am using the below powershell to get data from a ODBC data source and then write the output to a csv. Looks like the script is working but I think it is running in a loop where it is loading the data then clearing and reloading data again.

Can you please suggest me how to stop the loop and just load the data once

$OuputFile = "C:\Test.csv"
function Get-ODBC-Data{
   param([string]$query=$(throw 'query is required.'))
   $conn = New-Object System.Data.Odbc.OdbcConnection
   $conn.ConnectionString = "DSN=Test;Uid=username;Pwd=password;"
   $cmd = New-object System.Data.Odbc.OdbcCommand($query,$conn)
   $ds = New-Object system.Data.DataSet
   (New-Object system.Data.odbc.odbcDataAdapter($cmd)).fill($ds) | out-null

function Set-ODBC-Data{
   param([string]$query=$(throw 'query is required.'))
  $conn = New-Object System.Data.Odbc.OdbcConnection
  $conn.ConnectionString= "DSN=Test;Uid=username;Pwd=password;"
  $cmd = new-object System.Data.Odbc.OdbcCommand($query,$conn)

$query = "SELECT * FROM Tablename"
$result = Get-ODBC-Data -query $query
set-odbc-data -query $query

$result | Export-Csv $OuputFile -NoTypeInformation
(Get-Content $OuputFile) | foreach {$_ -replace ‘"‘} | Set-Content $OuputFile
