Hi all

Am trying to read an html page using win32com in the following way.

from win32com.client import Dispatch

ie = Dispatch("InternetExplorer.Application")


doc =ie.Document

print doc.body.innerHTML

with this code am easily able to read the mentioned page from the
pythonwin interactive window, but the same code if I write it in some
*.py file, am not able to read the page.

The following error it throws when I compile the file.

Traceback (most recent call last):

line 310, in RunScript

    exec codeObject in __main__.__dict__

  File "C:\Python23\Lib\site-packages\", line 14, in ?


  File "C:\Python23\Lib\site-packages\win32com\client\",
line 456, in __getattr__

    return self._ApplyTypes_(*args)

  File "C:\Python23\Lib\site-packages\win32com\client\",
line 446, in _ApplyTypes_

    return self._get_good_object_(

com_error: (-2147352567, 'Exception occurred.', (0, None, None, None,
0, -2147467259), None)

if any body has the answer for this please help me in this.


Thanks and regards
