It sounds like this is what you need:

Python Programming on Win 32 by Mark Hammond and Andy Robinson

The review on Amazon says:
In lieu of a general language tour, this book centers on practical tips and
examples for using Python on Windows... You'll learn how to write COM
servers in Python and then how to script them in Visual Basic (used here to
build user interfaces) and how to control Word and Excel with OLE Automation
in Python. One standout example looks at building and printing accounting
reports in Office 2000 using Python as the script language.
