Powershell Command 'Where' clause issue

In running the Get-mailboxStatistics, I keep getting the following error:

Get-MailboxStatistics |Where {$_.alias -eq 'Jsmith'}

"The term 'Where' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again."

I also tried the ? alias, same error.  Any thoughts?

Hi

Shouldnt Where be substituted by Where-Object and add the server like below?

Get-MailboxStatistics -server serverhere |Where-Object {$_.alias -eq 'Jsmith'}

Please try it, havent got PS near now.

The server switch doesn't make a difference. Getting same error.

At one time I was able to use Get-MailboxStatistics -database MB1 |Where-Object {$_.alias -eq 'Jsmith'}

Not sure what happened.
