What is a valid PowerShell parameter entry?

Hi Expert,

What is a valid parameter for LocalAccountNames and Local Account, this script doesn't work properly? Can you tell what's missing?

Thank you.

$Obj = @()

Foreach($Computer in $ComputerName)
            $AllLocalAccounts = Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_UserAccount -Namespace "root\cimv2" `
            -Filter "LocalAccount='$True'" -ComputerName $Computer -Credential $Credential -ErrorAction Stop
            $AllLocalAccounts = Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_UserAccount -Namespace "root\cimv2" `
            -Filter "LocalAccount='$True'" -ComputerName $Computer -ErrorAction Stop
      Foreach($LocalAccount in $AllLocalAccounts)
        Set-ExecutionPolicy remotesigned -Force
        Import-Module activedirectory

        $Object = New-Object -TypeName PSObject
            $Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Name" -Value $LocalAccount.Name
            $Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Full Name" -Value $LocalAccount.FullName
            $Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Caption" -Value $LocalAccount.Caption
                  $Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Disabled" -Value $LocalAccount.Disabled
            $Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Status" -Value $LocalAccount.Status
            $Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "LockOut" -Value $LocalAccount.LockOut
            $Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Password Changeable" -Value $LocalAccount.PasswordChangeable
            $Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Password Expires" -Value $LocalAccount.PasswordExpires
            $Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Password Required" -Value $LocalAccount.PasswordRequired
            $Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "SID" -Value $LocalAccount.SID
            $Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "SID Type" -Value $LocalAccount.SIDType
            $Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Account Type" -Value $LocalAccount.AccountType
            $Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Domain" -Value $LocalAccount.Domain
            $Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Description" -Value $LocalAccount.Description
            Foreach($Account in $AccountName)
                  $Obj|Where-Object{$psitem.Name -like "$Account"}

Running the script on a system here, it seems to work as I would expect it to.  

What command line are you using when running the script?  
What error are you getting?
Did you write the script yourself?  If not, where did it come from?

Thank you. When I used ISE to select the script and pressed F8 the script worked fine but I discovered a script error when I made a manual entry. My mistake. Thank you for the quick response.
