New to the forum (and to Powershell if I'm honest)
I have a problem I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction to solve – I have to merge two CSV files, adding a header and trailer (which is fine), the resulting output CSV (named with date/time stamp) will then be sent to a supplier.
This will be a daily task and as such the suppliers format specifies that a unique file transaction/sequence number is included in the header – basically 1 for the first file and so on. For the life of me I can't find out how to do this, referencing the previous sequence number and incrementing daily.
Any tips or pointers would be greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance
So, could you not store a starting value in a file?
1 | Out-File lastvalue.txt
$lastvalue = [int](Get-Content lastvalue.text) $todaysvalue = $lastvalue++ $todaysvalue | out-file lastvalue.txt
I will give that a go and get back to you, thanks for the quick reply – great forum, I'm sure I'll be spending a lot of time here!
