PowerShell Function Not Working as Expected

I have the following function:
function GetParameterValue($ParmFile, $ParmName)
{
	$tmp = $ParmFile | where { $_.Key -eq $ParmName } | Select Value
	return $tmp.value
}

Open in new window

$ParmFile is created outside the function with the following code:
$CSV = import-csv .\Params.csv

Open in new window

$CSV is what is passed to the function. The call syntax is
$ROOT = GetParameterValue($CSV, "ROOT")

Open in new window

This is returning an empty string. I know I am reading the data into $CSV because prior code was replicating what I encapsulated into the function and working properly. Is there something I am missing here?

You just need to change how you pass parameters to the function.
$ROOT = GetParameterValue $CSV "ROOT"

Open in new window
