Windows 7: elevated command administrator password

elevated command administrator password

I am writing a vba script for a standard user to run a program in elevated mode. Is there a way to program in the administrative password?

ie..elevate "cmd /k mkdir "newfolder"

The goal is to enable the standard user to create a new subfolder within a directory they don't have permission to do so as standard user.
