    in a .cmd I use at the end:

    exit /B %ERRORCODE% (where ERRORCODE=%errorlevel%)
    In this way I know how my .cmd finishes and I can use this variable for a traffic light in another program.
    How could I write something similar in powershell?

    I use $LastExitCode to test the errors...
    exit /B $LastExitCode doesn't function

    I am not sure if you:
    1) are trying to replace existing batch file with a powershell script while maintaining the same behavior
    2) are trying to detect exit code of a batch file that was run from powershell srcipt

    Which one is it?

    the first one.

    In my file 1.ps1 I use
    sqlcmd -S server -d dbase -b -Q "EXEC pr_MAIN_OLAP"

    after this row I put
    if ( $LastExitCode -ne 0) { write-host "error!"
    exit $LastExitCode
    exit $LastExitCode

    If I run this file (powershell.exe 1.ps1) I'm not sure if using exit $LastExitCode it's enough to have the exit code I need.
    0 -OK
    1- Error

    What do you think?

    If you are not sure try it 🙂
    Save this in c:\temp\test.ps1 file
    sqlcmd give me error
    exit $lastExitCode

    and from the old command line run:
    powershell -file "c:\temp\test.ps1"
    echo %errorlevel%

    Do you get 1?
