powershell get-childitem include option

I have two line of code that does get-childitem to search for files. I am using get-content to retrieve the data from a text file.

The command appears to be correct if I use write-host to display the command. However the data is clearly not in the properly format because the search returns nothing.

$file=(gc .\filelist.txt) -join ",";
gci -Pa $path -In $file -Re

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Oh boy. This is embarrassing. I thought the include option has to separate by comma.
