How to use Export-CSV Powershell

05 May,2012 by Tom Collins

Question: How can I export a Powershell recordset to a CSV file format, so I can then open the file in MS Excel?

Answer:   Powershell has the Export-CSV cmdlet . The Export-CSV cmdlet creates a CSV  file  of the script output.  The script needs to pipe the results to the Export-CSV cmdlet – with a filename parameter.

I add –notype to the Export-CSV cmdlet , as I prefer to not include the .Net object type in the first line

Get-Process | Where-Object {$_.PrivateMemorySize -gt 100MB} | SELECT ProcessName, PrivateMemorySize | Export-CSV -notype c:\privatememory.csv
