Powershell is putting in a blank space between columns. I can't have that in my export file. Thanks in advance.

You need the Big Book of Powershell Gotchas. https://powershell.org/books/the-big-book-of-powershell-gotchas-free/ Don – we need a sidebar menu with a link to that.

For a fixed-field output, you'll probably need to write a custom function to get really accurate output. Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
