I'm running a powershell script and I have a part of my script that  looks at the "employeeID" field before checking on the rest of the user's info. The issue is, I went to each one of the  test users in ADUC and set the "EmployeeID" attribute using the "Attribute Editor" tab hoping that the script would pick it up, that does not seem to  be happening, therefore I end up with the following errors:

There was a problem retrieving user
Get-ADUser : Variable: 'EmpID' found in expression: $EmpID is not defined.
At C:\scripts\Merge_Script.ps1:217 char:33
+             $ADUser = Get-ADUser <<<<  -Filter {(employeeID -eq $EmpID) -and (ObjectClass -eq "user") } -Properties e
mployeeID,givenName,sn,title,department,streetAddress,postOfficeBox,l,st,postalCode,telephoneNumber
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidArgument: (:) [Get-ADUser], ArgumentException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Variable: 'EmpID' found in expression: $EmpID is not defined.,Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.

$EmpID is not defined in your script.

do you mind to post the entire script to see where the error is.
