Okay, I&#039;m building a COM object in Python (because it can do with 17 lines what VB needs ~60 for...), but I&#039;ve hit a snag: Python doesn&#039;t play particularly well with dates. So I&#039;ll just build a little VB COM object that I can tap to read strings into dates and perform some little comparisons; this is hardly an issue -- use the best language for any given task at hand.<BR><BR>Unfortunately, I have not found any satisfactory examples of this sort of py.dll-to-com.dll behaviour. ("Python Programming on Win32" obsesses over scripting Excel, but doesn&#039;t seem to address "this is a Python.dll talking to some other COM object....") <BR><BR>Any help/examples would be both surprising and much appreciated.
