Hi powershell gurus,
I am getting the data in the following format :
CLASS COUNT DESCRIPTION INITIAL_UPDATE LAST_UPDATE SEVERITY
—– —– ———– ————– ———– ——–
Maintenance 1 IML Cleared (System Administrator) 07/02/2013 00:19 07/02/2013 00:19 Informational

Power 1 System Power Supply: General Failure (Power Supply 2) 11/07/2015 03:39 11/07/2015 21:32 Repaired
Power 1 System Power Supplies Not Redundant 11/07/2015 03:39 11/07/2015 21:32 Repaired
Requirement is to have events picked only in the last 24hours from INITIAL_UPDATE. Any assistance is much appreciated.

Can you provide some more detail on this data? How are you getting it? Is it read from a text file? Is it generated by another command? It is data a collection of objects or an array of strings? I could make some assumptions based on how the data looks, but it would be just that, assumptions. If it's an object, then it is very possible that the property is already in datetime. If it's a string, you may be able to convert it to day time by simply type casting the string as datatime
then you can use a timespan to check how old the stamp is
New-TimeSpan -start ([datetime]'7/14/1979 11:24:23') -End (Get-Date) #Results @' Days : 13479 Hours : 11 Minutes : 56 Seconds : 50 Milliseconds : 81 Ticks : 11646286100815366 TotalDays : 13479.4978018696 TotalHours : 323507.947244871 TotalMinutes : 19410476.8346923 TotalSeconds : 1164628610.08154 TotalMilliseconds : 1164628610081.54 '@
You can then use the timespan with an if statement to check if it's within your desired range.

One slight problem.
The string has to be in US format – MM/DD/YYYY – if you use that approach.

Converting a string to a DateTime object can be easy (if in US format) or a lot of work if in another format
What date format are you using?
