How to get a specific date range file count using PowerShell

Aase Nomad 246 Reputation points

I'm using PNP Module to get my OneDrive file and folder total items count. The below script is working fine but I'm just wondering if there is a way to get only a certain date range file and folder count.

For example, I just want an item total count between CreatedDate 03/03/2011 to CreatedDate 08/31/2022 instead of everything.

Any help or suggestion would be really appreciated.

   $SiteURL = ""  
   $ListName = "Documents"  
   Connect-PnPOnline $SiteURL -Credentials $credential  
   #Get the list  
   $List = Get-PnPList -Identity $ListName | Select Title, ItemCount  
   $global:counter = 0  
   $FolderItems = Get-PnPListItem -List $ListName -PageSize 500  -Fields "FileLeafRef", "Created","Modified", "SMTotalFileStreamSize","FileRef","File_x0020_Type" -ScriptBlock { Param($items) $global:counter += $items.Count; Write-Progress -PercentComplete `  
       ($global:Counter / ($List.ItemCount) * 100) -Activity "Getting Items from List:" -Status "Processing Items $global:Counter to $($List.ItemCount)"; }  | Where { $_.FileSystemObjectType -eq "folder" }

    You should be able to get the items by adding a CAML query to the Get-PnPListItem cmdlet.

    To query by date ranges with this: caml-query-search-between-two-date-ranges-sharepoint

    Hi @Aase Nomad
    I do agree with RichMatheisen-8856's answer. You can add a camlquery when Get-PnPListItem. Please refer to following script

    $Query =   
                <FieldRef Name='Created' />  
                <Value Type='DateTime'>2011-03-03T12:00:00Z</Value>  
                <FieldRef Name='Created' />  
                <Value Type='DateTime'>2022-08-31T12:00:00Z</Value>  
    $FolderItems = Get-PnPListItem -List $ListName -Query $Query
