New to Scripting

Hello and thank you in advance
I would like to create a script that executes a command from a remote server and automatically creates a file with the output and moves it to the source server running the command. Is this possible?

Code:
ssh username@host command > localfile

thank you for the quick reply one more question once i have the file can I automatically format it to say a csv file for excel or post it to a web page?

That is a big and vague enough question one can't really answer it without seeing the information you have and the information you want. There's not a general purpose "make any random text look pretty and tabular" command.

of course understood the data looks like this

And what do you want it to look like?

To make it a CSV, replace spaces with commas and add carriage returns, I suppse.

Code:
command | sed 's/ /,/g;s/$/\r/' > outputfile
