arrays powershll

I have a script here that I am trying to get to run. It basically goes into the text file and pulls each alias out and runs this against the email alias. The first problem is where to place the alias in the script and the second question is I tried to hard code this in under the command and it still failes.

$userList = Get-Content ("c:\list.txt file")

$MasterArray = @()

foreach ($user in $userList)
      {
      $TempArray = @()
      $TempArray = "" | Select Name, Foldersize, itemsinfolder, prohibitsendquota, UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults
      
      $folderstats = get-mailboxfolderstatistics -id "alias" | Select Name, Foldersize, itemsinfolder
      $MAILQUOTA = get-mailbox -id "alias" | select prohibitsendquota, usedatabasedefaults

      $TempArray.Name = $folderstats.Name
      $TempArray.Foldersize = $folderstats.Name
      $TempArray.itemsinfolder = $folderstats.itemsinfolder      
      $TempArray.prohibitsendquota = $MAILQUOTA.prohibitsendquota
      $TempArray.UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults = $$MAILQUOTA.UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults
      
      $MasterArray += $TempArray
      }

$MasterArray | ft

There are multiple things going wrong for you.  You're returning the results of 'get-mailboxfolderstatistics' to a value but it's actually a table that you're returning; $folderstats.Name is an array, not a single value.  You'd need to loop through the items.

Can we step back and have you explain exactly what you're trying to accomplish?  I suspect you want to create a report of mailbox values for a list of users, yes?

Here is what I am trying to accomplish. I am trying to run two different commands and then pull the results together. I thought an array would accomplish the task. The below commands satisfies what I am looking for but would like for a way to stick the alias in there and have these 5 fields to display.



get-mailbox -id "alias" | select prohibitsendquota, usedatabasedefaults


get-mailboxfolderstatistics -id "alias" | Select Name, Foldersize, itemsinfolder

I understand now; you're basically wanting to join two separate tables.  This should get you on the right track, if it isn't exactly what you want:
Get-Content c:\userlist.txt | foreach {
	$master = @()
	$quota = get-mailbox -id $_ | select ProhibitSendQuota,UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults	
	get-mailboxfolderstatistics -id $_ | select Name,FolderSize,ItemsInFolder | % {
		$temp = @()
		$temp = "" | select Name,FolderSize,ItemsInFolder,ProhibitSendQuota,UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults
		$temp.name = $_.Name
		$temp.FolderSize = $_.FolderSize
		$temp.ItemsInFolder = $_.ItemsInFolder
		$temp.ProhibitSendQuota = $quota.ProhibitSendQuota
		$temp.UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults = $quota.UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults
		$master = $master + $temp
	}
	$master | ft -a
}
