Deep in the weeds Meeting workspaces

  Date: Feb 20    Category: Sharepoint 2010    Views: 923

I've only recently started playing around with powershell in Moss 2010 (we
are just deploying our first 2010 farm this month). And I have run into a
very annoying issue I need to resolve.
When users setup a meeting workspace (specifically the Decision Making
template) sometimes the attendees will not get there name listed correctly
in the Attendee list/webpart.
Going down the rabbit hole using powershell I've found the following-

$web = Get-SPWeb "https://MeetingPortal/MyMeeting"
$list = $web.Lists["Attendees"]
$items = $list.Items
$items[4].xml
gives this big block of text-

<z:row xmlns:z='#RowsetSchema'
ows_ContentTypeId='0x0014B54229E486784CA00AD55A019EA003' ows_Title='
john.doe@...*ows_NameOverloaded=john.doe@...'
*ows_AssignedTo='41;#Doe,
John' ows_Status='None' ows_Attendance='Required' ows_FromICal='1'
ows_FromExternal='1' ows_In_x0020_Person='0' ows_By_x0020_Phone='0'

ows_LinkFilename='94_.000' ows_LinkFilename2='94_.000'
ows_ServerUrl='/Leader Working Time/Lists/Attendees/94_.000'
ows_EncodedAbsUrl='https://MyMeeting/Lists/Attendees/94_.000'
ows_BaseName='94_' ows_MetaInfo='94;#' ows__Level='1'
ows__IsCurrentVersion='1' ows_ItemChildCount='94;#0'
ows_FolderChildCount='94;#0' *ows_NameDisplay=john.doe@...ows_NameDisplayLink=john.doe@...'* ows_EditUser='Doe, John'
ows_Server
Redirected='0' />

From comparing good records vs bad records it seems these three fields are
bad:
ows_NameOverload
ows_NameDisplay
ows_NameDisplayLink
In the bad records they have the email address, in the good records they
have the display name in 'Last, First' format.

Can I use powershell to update this xml block? or am I barking up the
wrong tree?
