Hmm, I'm using Excel automation with keyword args with no
problem--Office/Excel 97, ActiveState Python 2.0 on Win95
(build 202) and NT4.0 (build 203).

self.xl = win32com.client.Dispatch('Excel.Application')
self.xlBook = self.xl.Workbooks.Add()
#SaveFormat defined to save in Excel95 format...
self.xlBook.SaveAs(filename, FileFormat=SaveFormat)

I'm not using the Password argument anywhere, but you say
you're having the same problem with other functions, so...

Is it only your Application object that is having problems
with keyword args?  My code seems to only use them with
my workbook objects.
