Calling Python Script from MS Excel?

Hi Group - 

I have written a "semi-program" in MS Excel related to running a football
pool.  I've updated it over the past two years or so, to the point where it
is getting pretty advanced.  Only, there are a few tricks that I want to
add that I could not do in Excel - so I did them in Python :)  Except as it
stands, the current python scripts have to be run via the command line. 
Does anyone know how to allow interaction between Excel and Python via
EXCEL?

I've looked on Mark Hammond's page, and I've figured out how to interact
with Python and Excel from PYTHON, but I can't seem to find the right info
for making the calls from the other end (i.e. from Excel).  Any advice
would be GREATLY appreciated!

PS - If anyone has any interest in this type of program, please let me know
- I'd be more than willing to release via the GPL or something to that
effect.  Thanks Again...
