Powershell against SQL

$conn = New-Object System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection
$conn.ConnectionString = "Data Source=(local);Initial Catalog=<dbname>;Integrated Security=True;"

$cmd = New-Object System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand
$cmd.connection = $conn
$cmd.commandtext = "SELECT ID, Title FROM Film.Films WHERE Title LIKE 'G%'"

$adapter = New-Object System.Data.SqlClient.SqlDataAdapter
$adapter.SelectCommand = $cmd

$dataset1 = New-Object System.Data.DataSet
$rowCount = $adapter.Fill($dataset1)

#Write-Host $dataset1.Tables[0].Rows.Count

foreach ($row in $dataset1.Tables[0])
Write-Host $row['Title'].ToString()


double-click on text with mouse selects it. Then right-click puts it in clipboard. Then go to new location in PowerShell and then right-click will paste it.
