The problem, as I understand it, is that OLEError is not coming
from Python but from COM.
So the errors are getting raised before Python even knows there
is a problem, so it cannot catch them in an except block.
>From my very limited expoerience of COM programming I'd guess
that there is a type mismatch somewhere either in the data you
are passing in or in the data you are getting back.
But thats just a guess based on the fact that at lreast 80% of
my COM programming errors have been data type inconsistencies!
