i posted a couple of snippets along with others in this earlier thread:

http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/browse_thread/thread/a7ed60067ca5a8d4

the XLRD package is a platform-independent non-COM way to *extract*
Excel data. you mentioned opening and manipulating spreadsheets
*using* COM, so there are more examples targeted towards what you were
asking for at that link.

i added a small section on Win32 COM client programming to the Core
Python book, and although it doesn't go extremely in-depth, it's
perfectly targeted to "newbs" coming from the Unix world, as was i.

hope this helps!
