Hi dear colleagues,

i would request your help to get the fields of the header or footer in proper format.
The code is here:

$docPath = "C:\Users\Dummy\Desktop\"  
$outputfile = "C:\Users\Dummy\Desktop\header_out.csv"  
if(Test-Path -path $outputfile) { Remove-Item -path $outputfile }  
  
$all_docs = Get-ChildItem $docPath -filter "n.docx"  
$word = New-Object -comobject "Word.Application"  
$word.Visible = $False  
$all_items = @()  
  
foreach ( $document in $all_docs)  
{  
  
 $item = New-Object System.Object  
 $doc = $word.Documents.Open($document.FullName);  
   
 $header = $doc.Sections.Item(1).Headers.Item(1).Range.Text  
  
   
 $item | Add-Member -type NoteProperty -name Name -value $document.FullName  
 $item | Add-Member -type NoteProperty -name Header -value $doc.Sections.Item(1).Headers.Item(1).Range.Text  
 $all_items += $item  
 $doc.Close()  
   
}  
$word.Quit()  
Remove-Variable doc  
Remove-Variable word  
$all_items | Export-CSV $outputfile  

but the csv output returns all the data with the title of fields unrelated with his values like this

the searched format would be (like the table of the header) :

Confidentiality Class External Confidentiality Label Document Type Page
Public Non restricted Instruction 1 (1)
