I want to be able to change the local password on all of my workstations. I have a script that does this already but the password is in the script. I would like to have the script look in a .txt file on a network share for the new password. I know very little about scripting and don't even know if this can be done. thanks.

Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network") 
strComputer = WshNetwork.ComputerName 

strComputer = "." 
Set objUser = GetObject("WinNT://" & strComputer & "/Administrator,user") 


objUser.SetPassword "password goes here"
objUser.SetInfo
