Does anyone have a powerhell script to export a list to an XML file?  I'm looking to schedule this as a windows task.  Get-SPList is not a cmdlet or function.  I've got part of the script but cannot get he entire list exported.

That one only pulls ID & Title, we are trying to export a very large list with all the items.

Just add a line for each column you want to export, i.e. if you have a column called "Name" then add

$xml.WriteAttributeString("Name",$_['Name']);


If for some reason you do not know the names of the columns, or you want to find out what your columns are called internally, then search Google for SharepointManager  and use that to investigate the list.

I did and it did not work.  I'm looking for something to pull all the columns.  Thanks for your assistance, I will accept this as a solution.  I think I need to do some work on my end.
