Database EXtendedProperty is not displaying in excel sheet

  • Hi guys,

    I am trying to export all the database properties into .csv file using Powershell script. But the extendedProperty which i added into database is not displaying in csv file. I am getting those property from powershell prompt but not in csv file ( in csv file, the extenededProperties column displays this value: Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.ExtendedPropertyCollection

    I am using following script:

    foreach ($srv in get-content "D:\PS\Server3.txt") -- this server3.txt consists of servernames.


    [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName('Microsoft.SqlServer.SMO') | out-null

    $cn = new-object"Data Source=$inst;Integrated

    Security=SSPI;Initial Catalog=master");

    $s = New-Object ('Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server') $srv


    $dbs | select * | Export-Csv -path "D:\PS\dbdetails.csv"


    Plz help me how to display extended property of each database into csv file.

    I appreciate your kind help.
