If you are on Windows, and you have Excel, then the Python for Windows
extensions[1] are all you need to drive Excel via COM. O'Reilly's
"Python Programming on Win32" covers COM scripting extensively - and
by good fortune, driving Excel is the example they use, and the COM
scripting chapter is on-line[2].

You'll also need to know the objects and methods that Excel exposes.
These are documented on Microsoft's web site[3], or in the Excel VBA
help, which is an optional part of they Office installation.
