Powershell Script to parse XML files needs path of file parsed included on each line

I need a way to document what file the report fields are being pulled from in my CSV file. I can't figure it out, please help! My script is below:

$get = get-childitem "D:\Data\Scripts\Projects\Reports\Files" -include *.xml -recurse 
ForEach ($xmlfile in $get)
{
$name = Select-Object FullName
$data = $name
$Report = $xmlfile
$Fields = [xml](Get-Content $Report)
$data += $Fields.reportsettings.fieldlist.field | select @{ L = 'Description'; E = {$_.desc}},
                                                                        @{ L = 'Field Name'; E = {$_.criterion}},
                                                                        @{ L = 'Field ID'; E = {$_.id} } }
$data | Export-Csv D:\Data\Scripts\Projects\Reports\testfields.csv -NoTypeInformation

Like that?
$get = get-childitem "D:\Data\Scripts\Projects\Reports\Files" -include *.xml -recurse
$Data = @()
ForEach ($xmlfile in $get)
{
	$Fields = [xml](Get-Content $xmlfile.FullName)
	$data += $Fields.reportsettings.fieldlist.field | Select-Object -Property `
		@{L = 'Description';	E = {$_.desc}},
		@{L = 'Field Name';		E = {$_.criterion}},
		@{L = 'Field ID';		E = {$_.id}},
		@{L = 'Source File';	E = {$xmlfile.FullName}}
}
$data | Export-Csv D:\Data\Scripts\Projects\Reports\testfields.csv -NoTypeInformation

I tried something like that and it didn't work. This is what the result shows.

Name                           Value
----                           -----
E                              $xmlfile.FullName
L                              Source File

I saved the following as test.xml in D:\Temp:
<reportsettings>
	<fieldlist>
		<field>
			<desc>Description</desc>
			<criterion>Criterion</criterion>
			<id>ID</id>
		</field>
	</fieldlist>
</reportsettings>

Open in new window

I used this as script (which I copied and pasted back from this site, and just replaced the first line to read the test file, and the last line to output to the console):
$get = get-item "D:\Temp\test.xml"
$Data = @()
ForEach ($xmlfile in $get)
{
	$Fields = [xml](Get-Content $xmlfile.FullName)
	$data += $Fields.reportsettings.fieldlist.field | Select-Object -Property `
		@{L = 'Description';	E = {$_.desc}},
		@{L = 'Field Name';		E = {$_.criterion}},
		@{L = 'Field ID';		E = {$_.id}},
		@{L = 'Source File';	E = {$xmlfile.FullName}}
}
$Data | ft -au

Open in new window

And got this as output, which looks just like it should:
Description Field Name Field ID Source File
----------- ---------- -------- -----------
Description Criterion  ID       D:\Temp\test.xml

Open in new window

So please post the exact script you used, and a sample xml.
