PowerShell Script to Count Strings in File

December 29, 2016

Here's a simple PowerShell script you can use to find the number of times a string appears in a text file.  Simply open PowerShell ISE and change the directory to the one with the text file you want to search.   Use the standard Windows cd command.

 

 Then enter the script in this form:

@( Get-Content hellwegecomplaint.txt | Where-Object { $_.Contains("PageID") } ).Count

 

 

In this example we're searching the text file hellwegecomplaint.txt for references to the string 'PageID'.   As you can see we get the correct result: 13. 

 

Thanks to Phil Erb for this idea
