Cannot bind argument to parameter 'Path'

Cannot bind argument to parameter 'Path'

Cannot bind argument to parameter 'Path'

Hi Support Team,

I am running the below command in PowerShell and getting below error message but still the data gets copied over:

PS C:\AWARDS> Get-Content .\AACE001N.txt | Foreach-Object { copy-item -Path $_ -Destination C:\AWARDS\AACE001N\}

Copy-Item : Cannot bind argument to parameter 'Path' because it is an empty string.
At line:1 char:63
+ ... -Content .\AACE001N.txt | Foreach-Object { copy-item -Path $_ -Destin ...

+ ~~
+ CategoryInfo : InvalidData: (:) [Copy-Item], ParameterBindingValidationException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : ParameterArgumentValidationErrorEmptyStringNotAllowed,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.Copy

Thank you for your support

RE: Cannot bind argument to parameter 'Path'

You might want to ask that in forum1619: PowerShell (Microsoft) rather than here.

But on first glance, it would suggest you have a blank line in AACE001N.txt
