    Hi, I have a files lines of file names, like:

    file1.txt
    File2.txt
    FILE3.txt
    FILE4.TXT

    I run a commnad below:

    cat \\share\file.txt | where { $_.ToUpper().Split(".")[0] -ne $_.Split(".")[0] }

    But, it does not result with expected result, that is:

    file1.txt
    File2.txt

    Why? Can someone help me?

    Regards

    PowerShell is case-insensitive on string comparisons. Use -cne instead of -ne.
