Need scripting help...ASAP

Hello everyone, I am very inexperienced with powershell (but I LOVE it).  I have a txt filled with file names that i want to search a network drive for.  I also would love it to output a list of files that it finds on the network to a txt/csv to show a user how many files from their local computer are actually saved to the network.  I need to run it tonight, so I don't have time to fiddle with it to get it working.  I'm sure its a pretty easy one.  Can anyone lend me a hand?

If I understand your requirement correctly then following code should work for you.. Replace \\Server\share with your share name and C:\Filenames.txt with your file with file names to search..
GCI \\Server\share -Include (GC C:\Filenames.txt) -Recurse | Select Fullname,LastWriteTime,Length,Name | Export-Csv C:\report.csv -nti
