Hi, This may be the easiest question you have ever heard..But I must ask this since I am new to Powershell..

I need powershell to ask for a user input and then based on the input it must read the contents of an xml file corresponding to that input.

If user input is 1 then it should read the corresponding data of 1 from an xml file that is already defined.Can someone please help me on this??
