Posted by Andy Brown on 09 November 2021
If you're a VBA programmer, you'll love the fact that you can get at the MS Office COM object models from within Python using the win32com.client module. This practical tutorial shows how to manipulate Excel and Word from within Python, how to translate VBA programs and how to list Outlook emails and download attachments in Python.
This video has the following accompanying files:
|Useful links.txt||Text file||Some useful web links|

Making a video bigger
You can increase the size of your video to make it fill the screen like this:
Play your video (the icons shown won't appear until you do), then click on the full screen icon which appears as shown at its bottom right-hand corner.
When you've finished viewing a video in full screen mode, just press the Esc key to return to normal view.
Improving the quality of a video
To improve the quality of a video, first click on the Settings icon:
Make sure you're playing your video so that the icons shown appear, then click on this gear icon at the bottom right-hand corner.
Choose to change the video quality:
Click on Quality as shown to bring up the submenu.
The higher the number you choose, the better will be your video quality (but the slower the connection speed):
Don't choose the HD option unless you have a fast enough connection speed to support it!
Is your Wise Owl speaking too slowly (or too quickly)? You can also use the Settings menu above to change your playback speed.
