Switch to user ID, change ID password in LotusScript

I use this code in LotusScript to go through shares on a server looking for user ID files. Once the ID files were found, I would run the code against them to gather information about the ID. I've also used the code in a Domain merge to run a list of IDs against a server to change a password and trigger the Adminp process.

Declare Function 
SECKFMChangePassword Lib 
"c:lotusnotesnnotes.dll"
(Byval IDFile$,Byval OldPassword$,
Byval NewPassword$)As Integer
Declare Function 
SECKFMSwitchToIDFile Lib 
"c:lotusnotesnnotes.dll"
(Byval IDFile$,Byval Password$,
Byval UserName$, Byval 
MaxUserNameLength%,Byval 
ReservedFlag&,Byval flag&)As Integer
Declare Function OSLoadString Lib 
"c:lotusnotesnlib.dll"
(Byval hModule&, Byval Status%, 
Byval retBuffer$, Byval BufferLength%)
 As Integer

Const MAXUSERNAME=256
Type ID_INFO
 Name As String
 Password As String
End Type

Function APICheckError(Error%) As String
 
 Dim s$, x%
 
 If Error% <> 0 Then
  s$ = Space$(254)
  x% = OSLoadString(0, Error%, s$, 254)          
  If x% = 0 Then
   s$ = "General Notes Error"
  Else
   s$ = Left$(s$,x%)
  End If          
  APICheckError= s$
 End If          
 
End Function

Sub APISwitchID(filepath$, 
passwordlist, id As ID_Info, s$)
 Dim Status%
 Dim Flag%
 
 Dim UserName As String * MAXUSERNAME
 
 ID.Name="NA"
 ID.Password= "NA"
 
 Flag%=False
 Forall x In PasswordList       
  pword$=Cstr(x)
  Print s & " Checking Password ......" 
& Pword$ ,filepath$
  Status%=SECKFMSwitchToIDFile
(filepath$,pword$,UserName,
MAXUSERNAME,0,0) 
  If Status% =0 Then      
   Print Now " Change Password 
SUCCESS %lt" & IDFile$ & ">"    
'   Call  CreateIDDoc(filepath$,UserName,
pword$,filepath$)    
   Flag%=True
   ID.Name=UserName
   ID.Password= Cstr(x)
   Exit Forall
  Else  
   Print "Error " & APICheckError(status%)
   Print" Change Password 
ERROR <" & IDFile$ & ">"
   Print" ERROR <" & 
APICheckError(status%)& ">"  
  End If 
  Status%=0
  Yield
 End Forall
 If Flag%=False Then
  Print Now & " ERROR Could 
Not Add file <" & IDFile$ & ">"    
 End If
 
End Sub

Function  APIChangePword(IDFile$, 
OldPword$, NewPword$)As Integer
 
 Dim Status% 
 
 Status%=SECKFMChangePassword
(IDFile$,OldPword$,NewPword$)
 If Status% =0 Then 
  Print"Change Password SUCCESS 
<" & IDFile$ & ">"
  APIChangePword=True
 Else  
  Print"Change Password ERROR <" 
& IDFile$ & ">"
  Print"ERROR <" & APICheckError
(status%)& ">"
  APIChangePword=False
 End If 
 
End Function
