      I have object Report like this below
      Name value count
      Alan low 8
      John high 3
      Alan low 5
      Andrew low 2
      Alan high 1
      Andrew high 2

      could you help me to group items in this object to get group for each change in Name and each change in value, count should be summed so I should get something like below
      Alan low 13
      John high 3
      Andrew low 2
      Alan high 1
      Andrew high 2

      For every change in column Name check column value and when you find change group Name, value and make sum of column count where ex. Name is Alan and value low, next Name Alan value high etc.

      How can I do this ?

      Hi Remigiusz,

      Can you explain a bit more. What you want to achieve?

      One way is to accumulate the counts using a hash table with the Name and Value as the keys, and then create a new set of objects from the hash table:

      $ht = @{}
      $objects |
      foreach {$ht["$($_.Name) $($_.Value)"] += [int]$_.count}

      $ht.keys |
      sort |
      foreach {
      New-Object psobject -Property @{
      Name = $_.split()[0]
      Value = $_.split()[1]
      Count = $ht.$_
      } |
      select Name,Value,Count|
      Format-Table -AutoSize

      Name Value Count
      ---- ----- -----
      Alan high 1
      Alan low 13
      Andrew high 2
      Andrew low 2
      John high 3

      I copy and pasted your data into notepad and saved it as a csv (meaning it uses a space as a delimiter).

      Import-Csv U:\tmp\data.csv -Delimiter ' ' |
      Group-Object -Property name, value |
      foreach {"$($_.Name), $(($_.Group | measure-object -property count -sum).sum)"}

      The output of the above one-liner looks like this:
      Alan, low, 13
      John, high, 3
      Andrew, low, 2
      Alan, high, 1
      Andrew, high, 2
