Welcome › Forums › General PowerShell Q&A › Capture all errors to a file
Is there a way to capture all the errors to a csv file with complete information? I need it to a file because these are task scheduled scripts.
Any ideas? My main goal is to get the complete error data.
The $Error variable captures all occurring errors. You could just pipe it to export-csv, or select just the properties you want to have in your csv.
$Error | select targetobject,exception | Export-Csv c:\temp\errorfile.csv -NoTypeInformation
In your above example how would I get information like $error.Invocationinfo.Line piece of the data.
I would like to select pieces of the data and one of my most needed pieces is Invocationinfo.Line. To see the command that failed.
You already got it, $error.Invocationinfo.Line
You can use a Foreach-Object on $Error and then pick Invocationinfo.Line in the process scriptblock.
Do I have to collect those into a new object then to export all this into a csv?
