Go to path and read txt file

I have a list full of directories and I want to loop through those directories and open the txt file. Then read the data inside that txt file and assign to a variable.

This is an example of the directory list looks like:


C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\ArtistCG\[ Go! Go! Heaven!!]_____________25 -______ ___- [525067]\test.txt
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\ArtistCG\[12CUT] _____ (Gakkou no Kaidan) [518382]\test.txt
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\ArtistCG\[2____] _____!__CD__________ [521206]\test.txt
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\ArtistCG\[Ability] _____________________ [514182]\test.txt
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\ArtistCG\[Abo Manten] Kyuusho seme maniacs vol. 3 (Weak Spot Maniacs vol.3) [521993]\test.txt
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\ArtistCG\[Afro] Futanari angel cg collection [521560]\test.txt
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\ArtistCG\[Aim-ZERO] Case Vol.4 [519927]\test.txt
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\ArtistCG\[Air Hike] ________CG_2 [525114]\test.txt 

Now here's the code


Option Explicit

Dim objFSO, strTextFile, strData, strLine, arrLines
CONST ForReading = 1

'name of the text file
strTextFile = "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\ArtistCG\folders.txt"

'Create a File System Object
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

'Open the text file - strData now contains the whole file
strData = objFSO.OpenTextFile(strTextFile,ForReading).ReadAll

'Split the text file into lines
arrLines = Split(strData,vbCrLf)

'Step through the lines
For Each strLine in arrLines
wscript.echo strLine

Set objFSO = Nothing 

Now the problem with the code is it reads the contents of folders.txt instead of going to the directory and read the test.txt file. Can anyone help me fix this?
