    Hi All,

    I have an imported CSV:
    Project 1,19122018,16:39:26,19122018,16:39:28,00:01.8
    Project 2,19122018,16:39:28,19122018,16:39:29,00:00.3
    Project 3,19122018,16:39:29,19122018,16:39:29,00:00.4
    Project 4,19122018,16:39:29,19122018,16:39:29,00:00.3
    Project 5,19122018,16:39:29,19122018,16:39:30,00:00.3
    Project 6,19122018,16:39:30,19122018,16:39:30,00:00.3
    Project 1,19122018,16:39:30,19122018,16:39:31,00:00.5

    Each project can occur multiple times on the same day or over several days. I am attempting to sum the duration of each project on each day.

    $output = (Import-CSV -Path csvPath -Delimiter ",") | Group-Object -property StartDate,Project
    foreach ($name in $output)
        write-host $ "," $name.Group.Duration

    I have gotten as far as the above, which groups by date, then by project as desired, unfortunately I am struggling to Sum the duration as they appear to be stored as text rather then timespan?

    Is anyone able to suggest a way around this?

    Thanks in advance

    The format of the duration in your CSV data seems a little bit odd for me. I think you'd be better off when you use the start and end dates and times. I tweaked your data a little bit because your data almost do not make sense. 😉 I'm pretty sure there are more sophisticated ways to achieve what you need but at least it's working (I hope). 😉

    $Source = @'
    Project 1,19122018,16:29:26,19122018,16:39:28,00:01.8
    Project 2,19122018,16:19:28,19122018,16:39:29,00:00.3
    Project 3,19122018,16:36:29,19122018,16:39:29,00:00.4
    Project 4,19122018,16:22:29,19122018,16:39:29,00:00.3
    Project 5,19122018,16:15:29,19122018,16:39:30,00:00.3
    Project 6,19122018,16:12:30,19122018,16:39:30,00:00.3
    Project 1,19122018,15:30:30,19122018,15:55:31,00:00.5
    $csv = ConvertFrom-Csv -InputObject $Source -Delimiter ','
    $output = $csv | Group-Object -property StartDate,Project 
    foreach ($name in $output){
        $Sum = $name.Group | ForEach-Object {$Start = [DateTime]::ParseExact(($_.StartDate + $_.StartTime) ,'ddMMyyyyHH:mm:ss',$null) ;$End = [DateTime]::ParseExact(($_.EndDate + $_.EndTime) ,'ddMMyyyyHH:mm:ss',$null) ; New-TimeSpan -Start $Start -End $End} | Measure-Object -Property TotalSeconds -Sum
        $Duration = New-TimeSpan -Seconds $Sum.Sum
            Project = $
            Duration = "{0:00}:{1:00}:{2:00}" -f $Duration.Hours, $Duration.Minutes,$Duration.Seconds
