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??

Powershell will ask for a userinput.Based on that input it must read the contents of an xml file..If you feel not difficult to go here,you may get an idea on this question..

$a = [xml](get-content C:\temp\centers.xml)
$b = Read-Host "Enter Center"

if (($c=$a.detail.centre | where {$ -eq $b}) -ne $null)
Write-Host $
Write-Host $c.servername
Write-Host $c.ip
Write-Host $c.uname
Write-Host $c.pwd
Write-Host $c.dbname
