Python, Com and Ms Word
Firstly, i apologise as i didn't know where else to put this, i'm using python and COM to interact with MS Word, i'm trying to find the API that i can use to invoke the search and replace within word, so it replace every instance of ANDY with BOB.
Word = win32com.client.DispatchEx('Word.Application')
Word.visible = 0
Word.Application.ActivePrinter = printer
doc = Word.Documents.Open(wordfile, False, False, False)
# do replacing here
while Word.BackgroundPrintingStatus > 0:
Then its gonna print the doc and quit without saving.
Also, does anyone know where on MSDN where the documentation is for what API's word exposes thru COM.
