Get-DataInfo

This function prints information about a PowerShell object array including the column name, column data type, non-null values.

$data = ConvertFrom-Csv @"
Region,ItemName,Units,TotalSold
,screws,5.3,3
North,,5.7,58
East,drill,6.3
"@

$data.info()
# Get-DataInfo $data
Entries: 3
Columns:  4


ColumnName NonNull DataType
---------- ------- --------
Region           2 string
ItemName         2 string
Units            3 double
TotalSold        2 int



string(2) double(1) int(1)


Read-Csv

Read comma-separated values (csv). $target can be a URL, a file, or a string

#$file = "targetData.csv"
$url = 'https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dfinke/ImportExcel/master/Examples/JustCharts/TargetData.csv'
$str = @"
"Cost","Date","Name"
"1.1","1/1/2015","John"

New-DataFrame

Creates an array of objects, size-mutable, can be heterogeneous, tabular data

New-DataFrame (Get-DateRange 1/1 -periods 5) p1,p2,3 {Get-Random}
Index              p1         p2          3

Group-ByAndMeasure

Groups data and can either get the Count, Average, Sum, Maximum or Minimum

$str = @"
Region,Item,TotalSold
West,apple,2
South,lemon,4
East,avocado,12
South,screwdriver,70
North,avocado,59
North,hammer,33
North,screws,69
East,apple,21
West,lemon,67

"@

Group-ByAndMeasure (Read-Csv $str) Region TotalSold Sum
Region Sum
------ ---
West    69
South  126
East    33
North  161

Get-DateRange

Return a fixed frequency Datetime Index

Get-DateRange 1/1/2020 -periods 6

2020-01-01
2020-01-02
2020-01-03

SQL Query

The PSKit module adds a method Query() to lists of objects. You pass a SQL statement to it to work on that set of data. Currently, the SQL syntax is limited to Select the properties you want to see and a Where clause with value type comparison and logical operators. It does not support multiple arrays, joins or aliasing etc.

$data = ConvertFrom-Csv @"
name,age,cash
Chris,44,72
Brian,26,110
Ryan,18,145
Joe,34,83
"@

Scan All The Properties

$data = ConvertFrom-Csv @"
name,phoneNumber
Chris,555-999-1111
Brian,555-123-4567
Ryan,555-123-8901
Joe,555-777-1111
Jane,555-777-2222
"@

Find phone numbers matching the pattern "ddd–123-dddd".

PS C:\ $data.ScanProperties("\d{3}-123-\d{4}")

name  phoneNumber
----  -----------
Brian 555-123-4567
Ryan  555-123-8901

Find records that end in "an$".

PS C:\ $data.ScanProperties("an$")

name  phoneNumber
----  -----------
Brian 555-123-4567
Ryan  555-123-8901

Works with built in PowerShell Functions

PS C:\ (Get-Service).ScanProperties("^mssql")

 Status Name           DisplayName                    ServicesDependedOn
 ------ ----           -----------                    ------------------
Stopped MSSQLSERVER    SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER)       {}
Stopped MSSQLSERVER    SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER)       {}
Stopped SQLSERVERAGENT SQL Server Agent (MSSQLSERVER) {MSSQLSERVER}
Stopped SQLSERVERAGENT SQL Server Agent (MSSQLSERVER) {MSSQLSERVER}

Use SQL like query

Note: This feature requires the PowerShell module PSStringScanner.

Install-Module PSStringScanner

Supports a simple SQL Select statement syntax for querying arrays of data.

$actual = $data.query("SELECT cash, name FROM data where name like '*i*' and cash > 100")

cash name

Generate summary statistics

Get-PropertyStats will calculate different statistics based on the type of each column.

Note: There are two other ways to get the same results $data | Get-PropertyStats or $data.stats()

$data = ConvertFrom-Csv @"
a,b,c,d,e,f,g
2,0.0,FALSE,"""Yes!""",2011-11-11 11:00,2012-09-08,12:34
42,3.1415,TRUE,"Oh, good",2014-09-15,12/6/70,0:07 PM
66,,False,2198,,,
"@

Get-PropertyStats $data
ColumnName DataType HasNulls Min    Max Median StandardDeviation         Variance    Sum
---------- -------- -------- ---    --- ------ -----------------         --------    ---
a          int         False   2     66     42   32.331615074619 1045.33333333333    110
b          double       True   0 3.1415      0  1.81374587065921 3.28967408333333 3.1415
c          bool        False
d          string      False
e          datetime     True
f          datetime     True
g          datetime     True

Create a Lookup Table

Have data that with a unique id column? Want to use it as a lookup table? Here you go:

$data = ConvertFrom-Csv @"
slug,place,latitude,longitude
dcl,Downtown Coffee Lounge,32.35066,-95.30181
tyler-museum,Tyler Museum of Art,32.33396,-95.28174
genecov,Genecov Sculpture,32.299076986939205,-95.31571447849274
"@

This is similar to Group-Object built into PowerShell. New-LookupTable also handles missing data.

PS C:\> New-LookupTable $data slug

Name                           Value
----                           -----
dcl                            @{slug=dcl; place=Downtown Coffee Lounge; latitude=32.35066; longitude=-95.30181}
tyler-museum                   @{slug=tyler-museum; place=Tyler Museum of Art; latitude=32.33396; longitude=-95.28174}
genecov                        @{slug=genecov; place=Genecov Sculpture; latitude=32.299076986939205; longitude=-95.3157144...

Convert Fixed Data Based on a Schema

Fixed-width files are particularly challenging to parse. Save yourself some frustration by using a CSV-formatted schema to convert your fixed-width file into PowerShell objects.
