Accessing a file inside the same directory


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’



You can even use tab completion to verify its there.

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

.\ is the current directory. Did you mean the script directory?

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.

Thank you.
