    After much discussion with Aaron Nelson and Chrissy LeMaire, and thanks to the enormous amount of support for this item, we’ve recognized that this is something we need to accomplish, one way or another.

    We don’t want to offer an ETA on this as the work is not well understood by our team yet, and no one currently has immediate bandwidth on starting that investigation. But I want to stress the fact that is an important ask that we’re taking seriously as a priority.

    In the meantime, it would be immensely useful if someone with expertise in the DataTable space could submit an RFC (basically a brief spec) to our PowerShell-RFC repository on GitHub. That way, we can have a discussion about what the design of a ConvertTo-DataTable cmdlet might look like before we dive in on an implementation. The process for doing so is located here: https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell-RFC/blob/master/RFC0000-RFC-Process.md#draft

    I…

    That's a good point about ConvertTo-DataTable! I can see how that name may be more appropriate.

    Hey Max,
    Aaron and I had talked about this and believe it's in the realm of the PowerShell team which is why we filed it here and not Connect.

    DataTables are part of System.Data and aren't specific to SQL Server. I use DataTables when working with CSVs, SQLite and another guy used it with Postgres. It would be beneficial if it was a global out, like Out-GridView.

    It will be cool when PowerShell gets to Linux, too, because then people could use it with MySQL ;)

    Hey Joey,
    Thanks for responding. As you may be aware, getting the SQL Server community to adopt PowerShell has been challenging for a variety of reasons. Because of this, it will be hard to get proponents of Out-DataTable to jump in and vote because... we'll be trying to use Out-DataTable to recruit them.

    Out-DataTable will be key for easy SQL imports. If we get it, we can also suggest to the SQL Server team a few fun ways to take advantage of it in SQLPS.

    I understand your position, however, and will work to call in the cavalry.

    Chrissy LeMaire commented  · 

    YES PLEASE! DataTables are amazing, and if they are made easily accessible, it will help the adoption of PowerShell within the SQL Server community.

    Ouch, just tested the following but it took 9.2 seconds on a small domain:

    Get-CimInstance -ClassName Win32_UserAccount -Filter "Caption='base\\ctrlb'"
