Yes; change the except clause. Either drop the exception handling, so
that the system can tell specifically why it's having problems, or adjust
the exception handler so it's more informative.
A quick way to make an exception more informative is to use the
print y, "does not exist"
will make the debugging easier. (Doesn't this seem related to our thread
about exceptions just a week ago? *grin*)
