Import-CSV

Short description
Converts object properties in a comma-separated value (CSV) file into CSV versions of the original objects.

Syntax
Import-CSV [[-Delimiter] <char>] [-Path] <string[]> [-Header <string[]>] [<CommonParameters>]

Import-CSV -UseCulture [-Path] <string[]> [-Header <string[]>] [<CommonParameters>]

Description
The Import-CSV cmdlet creates objects from CSV variable-length files that are generated by the Export-CSV cmdlet. 

You can use the parameters of the Import-CSV cmdlet to specify the column header row, which determines the property
 names of the resulting objects; to specify the item delimiter; or to direct Import-CSV to use the list separator f
or the current culture as the item delimiter.

The objects that Import-CSV creates are CSV versions of the original objects. The property values of the CSV object
s are string versions of the property values of the original objects. The CSV versions of the objects do not have a
ny methods.

You can also use the ConvertTo-CSV and ConvertFrom-CSV cmdlets to convert objects to CSV strings (and back). These 
cmdlets are the same as the Export-CSV and Import-CSV cmdlets, except that they do not save the CSV strings in a fi
le.
