I have a text file that looks like this:

Data1 Data2 Data3 Data4

But how will I change it within a script to make it look like this:

Data1

Data2

Data3

Data4

Give us an example of actual data. If there is a specific layout (like space delimited like your example) then doing what you want is fairly easy.

So everything is seperated by a space?

$array = StringSplit($text, " ")

- or -

StringReplace($text, " ", @CRLF)

Our answers will most likely not work if we have to guess at the ACTUAL DATA format that you are dealing with.
