I have two files, one xml and one csv file. The .csv file has two columns, the first column containing the value from the xml and the second column containing a value needed to update the .xml. The ask - to read the xml file for the specific value, compare that value to the data in the first column of the csv file. If there is a match, take the value in column B and update the .xml. If no match, update the xml with a generic value. The csv file is comma delimited. There could be multiple xml files in the subdirectories that need to be read.
Example files attached.
The XML - <testdata TestDataToLookup="test2" random="data" TestDataToInsertFromCSV="" random="data"/>
test2 would be looked up in the csv file and column 2 would be inserted in between "" of TestDataToInsertFromCSV
Assuming the file would start with something like:
$path_search = "c:\test\ReferenceFile.csv"
$path_target = "c:\test\" - there could be multiple xml files in different subdirectories to be scanned.
$LookupFile = Import-CSV "C:\ReferenceFile.csv"
Very new to powershell. Any help in the right direction would be appreciated.
