Hi

I'm running the powershell code below to get the value of two columns for each item in a document library but the dept2 field is always blank.

I've tried with fields set as text field, choice and managed metadata - dont know if this makes a difference but end game is to check against a managed metadata field.

item.title and item.name appear as expected, just not the fields i've created - i have check and the internal field names.

 


$SPSite = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite("http://PATH TO SITE/")
$SPWeb = $SPSite.OpenWeb()
$SPList = $SPWeb.Lists["Shared Documents"]
foreach ($listItem in $splist.Items)
{
    Write-Host $listItem.title $listItem.dept2
}
$spsite.Dispose()

Correct code below.
[System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SharePoint") > $null
$SPSite = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite("http://server/sites/sitename")
$SPWeb = $SPSite.OpenWeb()
$SPList = $SPWeb.Lists["Demo metadata"]
foreach ($listItem in $SPList.Items)
{
    Write-Host $listItem.Title, $listItem["ColumnName"]
}
$SPWeb.Dispose()
$SPSite.Dispose()

Fantastic, that works...

Just to clarify then - for system columns $listItem.Title works but where you create a column yourself you need to use this format $listItem["ColumnName"]

Is that correct or is the difference related to site columns??
