Tip #49 | PowerShell, break long lines into readable code

Unlike other languages PowerShell does not allow you to just continue a command on a new line.

You have to specifically tell it to do that by adding a “Backtick” character.

This one:

`

Example:

Split-NAVApplicationObjectFile -Source “C:UsersMark BrummelDocumentsExport.txt” `

                               -Destination “C:UsersMark BrummelDocumentsFiles” `

                               -Force
