# Import New-PublicFolder -Name in bulk

• Long story short, the previous guy left no documentation. I did find his template file however. Now I just the EMC shell syntax.
We have public folder data to add.
For example I have 95 lines of this just for this one year in a CSV.
New-PublicFolder -Name 910002 -Path \Projects\1991
New-PublicFolder -Name 910007 -Path \Projects\1991
New-PublicFolder -Name 910008 -Path \Projects\1991
New-PublicFolder -Name 910009 -Path \Projects\1991
New-PublicFolder -Name 910010 -Path \Projects\1991
New-PublicFolder -Name 910011 -Path \Projects\1991
New-PublicFolder -Name 910012 -Path \Projects\1991
New-PublicFolder -Name 910013 -Path \Projects\1991
New-PublicFolder -Name 910014 -Path \Projects\1991

Looking at this, it doesn't show how I could use a CSV instead of manually typing it in.

I have 8 years to add like this. So I know he did it, I just have no idea what syntax he used to have Exchange shell grab from the CSV.

$myData=import-csv -Path "C:\Path\to\my\file.csv" foreach ($line in $myData) { New-PublicFolder -Name$line.NewFolderName -Path "\Projects\$($line.projectYear)"
}


In the above examplethe CSV file would have a column named "NewFolderName" and another column named Project Year

(It can have other info, it only gets used if you need it)
