Hi,

I want to user Powershell to list all the files in a particular folder in a document library. I tried the below and it does not work. Can help?

cls
[System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SharePoint")

$webUrl = "http://sharepoint.com.sg/sites/SiteA"
$listName = "Trademark Opposition"

$sc = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite($webURL)
$web = $sc.OpenWeb()
$list = $web.Lists[$listName]

#Below code don't work... need advice what is the correct way
$foldFirstLvl = $list.Folders["Happy-Tiger Vitamin Functional Drink 11289668 in class 32"]
foreach ($item in $foldFirstLvl) {
   Write-Host $item.Name;
}

Hi,
the problem is that afaik there is no direct way to get a specific folder from the folder collection.
But on the web object there is the getfolder method - but you have to pass the complete URL path to it.
The following works on my dev environment (SP 2010 Enterprise):
cls
[System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SharePoint")

$webUrl = "http://sharepoint.com.sg/sites/SiteA"
$listName = "Trademark Opposition"
$folderName = "Happy-Tiger Vitamin Functional Drink 11289668 in class 32"

$sc = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite($webURL)
$web = $sc.OpenWeb()
$list = $web.Lists[$listName]

#Get the folder reference based on the url AND use the Files property
$foldFirstLvl = $list.ParentWeb.GetFolder($web.Url + "/" + $list.RootFolder.Url + "/" + $folderName)
foreach ($item in $foldFirstLvl.Files) {
   Write-Host $item.Name
}

Open in new window
