    Hello,

    I have 2 files inside \\hqfs1\users\tantony\PowerShell\CalenderGroup\

    1 = a text file
    2 = Powershell script

    Do I have to type in Get-Content \\hqfs1\users\tantony\PowerShell\CalenderGroup\text.txt to read the text file or can I do?

    Get-Content './text.txt'

    Thanks,

    .\text.txt

    You can even use tab completion to verify its there.

    When I do that, it's pointing to system32 folder

    I mean the current directory. In my case \\hqfs1\users\tantony\PowerShell\CalenderGroup\

    That's a UNC path, so that could be the reason?

    Are you running this as a scheduled job? I've had issues with them in the past where it doesn't honor the working directory. If not, then yes, it may be a UNC path problem. If they are in the same directory, you could still use the script directory.
