Need help using a CSV file to copy files to new subfolders using Powershell

Last Modified: 2015-02-27
I have a CSV file with headers FilePath and FileDestination. I can load it in an array with import-csv.

What I need to do is copy each file from FilePath (eg G:\99999\0001\CientWill1.PDF) to the FileDestination (e.g G:\99999\00001\Trusts and Wills\ClientWill1.PDF). Creating the subfolders as needed.

Something with Copy-Item / Foreach-object using the headers should work, but I've tried a ton of combinations, and had no success. Can anyone give me a bit of help getting this going?
