    I would like to ask a rather simple question... how do I skip one loop meaning if I check some servers for some services using loop foreach i would like to skip a loop if server is off.

    You can use "continue" to end one loop:

    while ($a -lt 10)
    $a += 1
    if ($a -eq 5){continue}
    Write-Host $a

    it writes all numbers from 1 to 10 except 5 to the screen.

    Is this something you are looking for?

    foreach ($a in ("a","b","c","d")) {
    write-host ""
    Write-Host $a
    foreach($b in 1,2,3,4) {
    if($b -eq 3) {
    Write-host "Skipping $b"
    Write-Host "This will not appear"
    } else {
    Write-host $b

    A simple if statement can work:
    foreach ($server in $servers){
    if (test-connection $server -quiet){
    Do stuff

    Continue statment works like a charm, thank You for help.

    I know i could use the if statment but allready i got so many loops with diffrent if that i wanted to make it a bit easier for the eye.
