    Perhaps. OpenOffice can read and write MS office files, and OpenOffice
    has an API (called UNO for Universal Network Objects) which has a Python
    binding (called the Python-UNO bridge). This might (eventually) get you
    what you want.

    Here's a URL for it:
    http://udk.openoffice.org/python/python-bridge.html

    Good luck,
    Gary Herron

    You can automate MS Office using the python win32 com extensions of Mark
    Hammond. They come bundled with the active-state python build, or can be
    obtained separately.

    The Pywin32 package (http://sourceforge.net/projects/pywin32/)
    wraps the interfaces used to read and write document properties.
    Specifically, you can use pythoncom.StgOpenStorage to retrieve
    an IPropertySetStorage interface.
