    BAPI_USER_CHANGE should do the trick. You might want to take a look at [OSS note 1287410 - BAPI_USER_CHANGE: Set productive password|] or alternatively check out SUSR_USER_CHANGE_PASSWORD_RFC (but the BAPI is really the way to go and the latter RFC is just a dirty hack as far as I remember).

    p.s.: If you search on SDN you'll find plenty of postings on that topic...
