Get-Content './text.txt' Thanks, December 13, 2016 at 6:49 pm #60126 RonParticipant .\text.txt You can even use tab completion to verify its there. December 13, 2016 at 6:53 pm #60129 Tony AntonyParticipant When I do that, it's pointing to system32 folder December 13, 2016 at 7:26 pm #60130 RonParticipant .\ is the current directory. Did you mean the script directory? http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3667238/how-can-i-get-the-file-system-location-of-a-powershell-script December 13, 2016 at 8:20 pm #60136 Tony AntonyParticipant I mean the current directory. In my case \\hqfs1\users\tantony\PowerShell\CalenderGroup\ That's a UNC path, so that could be the reason? December 13, 2016 at 8:24 pm #60138 RonParticipant 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. December 13, 2016 at 8:40 pm #60144 Tony AntonyParticipant Thank you.
