  • Hey ak2010,

    Can you post your script for choosing one item - then maybe we could just modify what you already have.

    Below is the script for creating a multiple choice field:

    PS > Add-SPMultiChoiceField -url http://moss -List "My List" -Name "Favorite Music" -Description "Favorite Music" -Choices $("Country","Metal","Rock","Soul","Jazz")
    PS > Add-SPFieldToView -url http://moss -List "My List" -Field "Favorite Music" -View "All Items"

    Also - below is a great post on some very useful SP PowerShell Scripts:

    I hope that helps!
