I have a Powershell script that prompts for a project number, then performs a series of file and directory operations, but after it completes those operations I need it to locate an item in my Sharepoint "ProjectBid" list by "ProjectNum", then change the "Status" field to "Submitted"

Does anyone have a sample script that performs something like that?

Thank You,

Jim

You're in luck.

Try something like the below. Double check the if syntax. There's probably better ways to pull out the exact listitem you want using a camel query but the below is simpler to understand and do.
[System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SharePoint") > $null
$SPSite = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite("http://server/sites/sitename")
$SPWeb = $SPSite.OpenWeb()
$SPList = $SPWeb.Lists["ProjectBid"]
foreach ($listItem in $SPList.Items)
{

    if ($listItem["ProjectNum"] -eq $yourProjectNumber)
    {
       $listItem["Status"] = "Submitted"
       $listItem.Update()
    }
}


$SPWeb.Dispose()
$SPSite.Dispose()

Open in new window
