    How to give variable folder path in vbscript?

    This script basically goes to a folder and list all the files in that folder and output it in a txt file. Now instead of defining the folder path I want it to use the txt file that contains a bunch of folder paths in it and I want to loop that txt file. How can I do this?

    Dim fso
    Dim ObjFolder
    Dim ObjOutFile
    Dim ObjFiles
    Dim ObjFile
    'Creating File System Object
    Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    'Getting the Folder Object
    Set ObjFolder = fso.GetFolder("C:\Users\Susan\Desktop\Anime\ova")
    'Creating an Output File to write the File Names
    Set ObjOutFile = fso.CreateTextFile("C:\Users\Susan\Documents\iMacros\Macros\WindowsFiles.txt")
    'Getting the list of Files
    Set ObjFiles = ObjFolder.Files
    'Writing Name and Path of each File to Output File
    For Each ObjFile In ObjFiles

    You can use the filesystem object to read the text file line by line.
