Convert array to string in Powershell

Example: Get-QADUser returns it’s ProxyAddresses attribute as an array. To convert that array to a string I use –join. By using either “, “ or “`n” as an argument I can make the string singleline or multiline for better reading.

get-qaduser -service -Identity username -LdapFilter "(!(objectclass=inetOrgPerson))" | select name, @{n="proxy"; e={$_.ProxyAddresses -join "`n"}}  | fl *

    Good Day 🙂 I have been looking for a solution to this problem for a while. Thank you for posting. I would like further information however. How would I use that now converted string? I need to be able to use that newly converted string to update an excel spreadsheet or be able to add it to a SharePoint list. How can this be achieved?
