  • I have tried following both statements, but HTML.txt file is still blank.

    $ieObject.Document.Body.innerHTML|Out-File C:\Temp\HTML.txt

    $ieObject.Document.Body.innerHTML | Out-File C:\Temp\HTML.txt

    Do you have any suggestions on what wrong it is? would it be IE setting issue? How to check?
    Thank you very much for any suggestions (^v^)

  • When I run each code within PowerShell one at a time, it works and able to save into text file, but when I run the script containing all following codes, it does not able to save into text file.

    Somehow, I need to hold the process with script and make sure each line of codes finished before running the next line.

    Do you have any suggestions on how to hold the process within PowerShell Script?

  • For the last time, this is the correct line of code to save to a file.

    $ieObject.Document.Body.innerHTML | Out-File C:\Temp\HTML.txt

  • PowerShell runs one line at a time until it is finished before running the next line.

  • That is not true under my situation.

    When I run each code within PowerShell manually one at a time, it works and able to save into text file, but when I run the script, it does not able to save into text file.

    Do you have any suggestions on why script cannot save into text file?

    Thank you very much for any suggestions (^v^)
