Powershell - How to set multiple accounts to change password at next logon

Hi EE

I am not having any luck using the -ChangePasswordAtLogon  option or even if its the correct option to use .

I need to add hundreds of SamAccountNames to a .txt file and force those accounts to
change the password at next logon.

What have you tried so far

For one user it is easy

get-aduser -identity "samaccountname" | set-aduser -changePasswordAtLogon $true

With the text file you should be able to use get-content.    I'll try to test it out

Thanks
