Syntax
      Export-CSV [[-Delimiter] char] [-Path] string -InputObject psobject
        [-Encoding string] [-Force] [-NoClobber] [-NoTypeInformation]
           [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [CommonParameters] 

      Export-CSV [-UseCulture] [-Path] string -InputObject psobject 
         [-Encoding string] [-Force] [-NoClobber] [-NoTypeInformation]
           [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [CommonParameters] 

Key:
   -Delimiter char
       A delimiter to separate the property values.
       The default is a comma (,). Enter a character, such as a colon (:). 
       To specify a semicolon (;), enclose it in quotation marks.

   -Encoding string
       The encoding for the exported CSV file.
       Valid values are: Unicode, UTF7, UTF8, ASCII, UTF32, 
       BigEndian unicode, Default, and OEM. The default is ASCII.

   -Force
       Overwrite the file specified in path without prompting.

   -InputObject psobject
       The objects to export as CSV strings.
       Enter a variable that contains the objects or type a command or
       expression that gets the objects. You can also pipe objects to Export-CSV.

   -NoClobber 
       Do not overwrite (replace the contents) of an existing file.
       By default, Export-CSV will overwrite any existing file without warning.

   -NoTypeInformation
       Omit the type information from the CSV file.
       By default, the first line of the CSV file contains "#TYPE " 
       followed by the fully-qualified name of the type of the .NET Framework object.

   -Path string
       The path to the CSV output file. (required)

   -UseCulture
       Use the list separator for the current culture as the item delimiter.
       The default is a comma (,).

       This is useful in scripts that are being distributed to users worldwide.
       To find the list separator for a culture, use the following command:

         (Get-Culture).TextInfo.ListSeparator.
        
   -whatIf
       Describe what would happen if you executed the command without actually
       executing the command.
       
   -confirm
       Prompt for confirmation before executing the command.
 
   CommonParameters:
       -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -WarningAction, -WarningVariable,
       -OutBuffer -OutVariable.

Examples

Select a few properties from the wmiprvse process and export them to a CSV format file:

PS C:> get-process wmiprvse | select-object basePriority,ID,SessionID,WorkingSet | export-csv -path data.csv

Export objects representing the processes on the computer to Processes.csv (comma separated):

PS C:> get-process | export-csv E:\processes.csv

Export objects representing the processes on the computer to Processes.csv (semicolon separated):

PS C:> get-process | export-csv E:\processes.csv -Delimiter ";"

Export objects representing the processes on the computer and use -NoTypeInformation to suppress the type information in the output file:

PS C:> get-process | export-csv E:\processes.csv -NoTypeInformation
