    I am trying to get a Menu's output to work properly with a Variable I have setup for querying an AD OU and using the results for -ComputerName. I will place the code and one of the variables I have setup and where I try to use it.

    $Title = "Get WinRM status"
    $Message = "Please choose the Ou you like the status of"
    $Example1 = New-Object System.Management.Automation.Host.ChoiceDescription "Example1", `
        "You have selected Example1."
    $Example2 = New-Object System.Management.Automation.Host.ChoiceDescription "EXample2", `
        "You have selected Example2."
     $options = [System.Management.Automation.Host.ChoiceDescription[]]($Example1, $Example2)
        $result = $host.ui.PromptForChoice($title, $message, $options, 0)
    switch ($result)
            0 {"You selected Example1."}
            1 {"You selected Example2."}
    Get-Service -ComputerName $result -Name WinRM | Select-Object -Property MachineName, Name, DisplayName, StartType, Status | export-csv -Path \\mycomputer\c$\WinRM.csv 

    Then I use this code to query OU.

     $Example = Get-ADComputer -Filter * -SearchBase "OU=example, OU=PC, DC=Site, DC=com" | ForEach-Object {$_.Name} 

    The Get-ADComputer script is loaded whenever I open powershell with the profile.
    I need to link the example1 and 2(and I need to rename them so they don't replace the Get-ADComputer commands) with the Get-ADComputer and then feed that into the -ComputerName.

    I hope I have explained this clearly and would appreciate any help that anyone has.
    Thank you

    I have got it working by simply changing the

    Switch ($Result)
          0 {Get-Service -ComputerName $Example -Name WinRM | Select-Object -Property MachineName, Name, DisplayName, StartType, Status | export-csv -Path \\mycomputer\c$\WinRM.csv}

    Now I am trying to add a second set of { } for lines 0 thru 1 to execute a second command.
