  • There's no limit on writing to a CSV file.

    You can try:

    # max rows to export to CSV:
    While ($true) { #Forever
        "Some text" | Export-Csv -Path .\test12.csv -Append -NoTypeInformation

    until you run out of disk space, which may take a while. A million lines using the above script makes a 5 BM file..

    Now reading it back is an entirely different story. Try Delimit..
