Yes, you need to use Get-PnPListItem command to get the source list item & Set-PnPListItem to update the list item (or Add-PnPListItem to create new list item).

  • I need in the Get-PnpListItem to get the text in the column "Omschrijving" of the first row. How can i do that? P Apr 6, 2021 at 8:36
  • You need to pass the item ID to Get-PnPListItem command, like: Get-PnPListItem -List listName -Id 1. Where 1 is the item ID. You can pass the ID of item for which you want to get the column "Omschrijving". Check documentation for more details. Apr 6, 2021 at 8:40
