I have a problem in a script where i need to select a string and put it into a file.
I need to use the "Get-Website" cmmdlet in powershell to pull the ID

right now i am using Get-Website *sitename |fl ID now the output comes along like "id : 15"
i need to drop this down to sjust the ID number and use it elsewhere in the script to then inject it into a .txt file so that a perl script can come along and use it for stats
Cheers

Try this:

$val = ($string -split ": ")[1]

that does not seem to work, even when running the output of Get-Website via a | to it it errors on the $string –  BeStRaFe Aug 27 '10 at 0:11
    
@BeStRaFe: $string = Get-Website *sitename |fl ID then the line above. Or $val = ((Get-Website *sitename |fl ID) -split ": ")[1] –  Dennis Williamson Aug 27 '10 at 0:39
Get-Website *sitename | Foreach-Object {$_.Id}
