    I have the following code, but I need to extract the "return code" string as well as whatever numerical value is there, for instance a "0", or a 1", etc.

    I have no idea how to do this.

    Here is what I have so far and it works great, but I just want to extract "return code 0", or "return code 1".

    $SCCMClntReturnCode = @(
    Get-Content -Path "C:\Windows\ccmsetup\Logs\ccmsetup.log" |
    Select-Object -Last 1

    Here is the actual string that I would like to extract from:

    ![LOG[CcmSetup is exiting with return code 0]LOG]!>

    Thank you all for your help.

    You probably want to use the -match operator, along with a capturing regular expression. Once run, the built-in $matches variable will contain the captured values. This isn't necessarily easy stuff, but broadly speaking...

    "return code (?\d)"

    "return code " precedes what you want to capture, and so the (?\d) part would capture a single digit in a named capture group, named "code." might have some more useful detail. There are some great examples.
