    What I would like to do is create a custom object called "_my_sub_object" and then define my main object called "_my_main_object" where one of the fields is an array of objects using my sub object definition.

    What I need is an array of objects within an object. Any assistance would be appreciated.

    add-type @"
    public struct _my_sub_object {
    public string MySubField01;
    public string MySubField02;
    public string MySubField03;


    add-type @"
    public struct _my_main_object {
    public string MyObjField01;
    public string MyObjField02;
    public string MyObjField03;

    random commandline
    # Create two PSCustomObject
    $my_main_object = [pscustomobject]@{
    public1 = 'MyObjField01'
    public2 = 'MyObjField02'
    public3 = 'MyObjField03'
    $my_sub_object = [pscustomobject]@{
    public1 = 'MySubField01'
    public2 = 'MySubField02'
    public3 = 'MySubField03'
    # Add objects to hash table
    $my_object = @{}
    $my_object; $my_object.Values

    Or you can create two hash tables then add to a $my_object
    Ex: $main=@{};$sub=@{}

    Sorry about not being clear about I was looking for.

    I want to create a person object and an address object.
    In the person object I want to have an array of address objects.

    The address object must have 3 elements namely 1) Address type, 2) Street name and 3) State.

    The person object must have 3 elements namely 1) Name, 2) Last name and 3) array of address objects.

    Person (type/object)
    Address (type/object)

    Record # | Name | Last name | Address type | Street name | State |
    1 John Doe Physical 100 Main str NY
    Mailing P.O Box 123 NJ

    2 Jane Doe Physical 500 Main str NY

    It would be exceedingly helpful to see your input data.

    I do not have any input data yet. I am trying to see if this structure is even possible. Think of the case of a server and it's hard disks. You have a server object and a hard disk object. I want to create a function that collects information for a server and another function that collects information of a hard drive.

    As a server can have multiple hard disks so the server object must contain an array of hard disk information.

    Hope that helps.
