Just to start off im relatively new to coding so please try to keep things basic for me.  I have a project where i need to read data from a sharepoint list, and have that data writen to another sharepoint list.  Not to overwrite completely, but to add items on a scheduled basis.  I have a simple powershell script i have been using to write static data into a list, but i need to figure out the code involved in reading data from a list, then outputting to my choosing.  Can someone provide me with this information or point me in the right direction?  Again, all i need is to read from one list and output that data to another.  Thanks!
