I have a Powershell script that I've been working on and I'm stuck on one part and have run out of ideas and don't really have the time to finish it because I've already put a good 8 hours into researching and I haven't come up with anything online. I need someone to fix my errors, finish the script and clearlyexplain what they did in notes so I can learn. It's definitely not a big job for someone experienced in Powershell.
The scripts job is to look in a folder and its subfolders specified by the user and find any out of date, DOC>DOCX, XLS>XLSX, PPT>PPTX or PPTM and any out of date PDF files and convert them into their respective newer versions in another folder (also specified by the user) that retains the file structure, so any subfolders and said documents in the source folder are copied into the output folder and new subfolders are created if required.
All I have done so far is create the logic for the word conversion but I'm a novice so my code is probably terrible and I've run into an issue while trying to retain the folder structure. I'd like someone to finish the script with heaps of clear notes a novice can read about the best way to do it or any other tips or ideas to work on.
