Use a registered typelib that has ADODB.Connectio n functionality :)

Any suggestions...

I'm not positive about this, but when using com you need to force it
into the compile. In my applications where I use Excel I use this line:

python setup.py py2exe --progid "Excel.Applicat ion"

You may need to do something similar for the db application.

Ok apparently that's not the fix. I just tried that with Python 2.4 and
the newest version of py2exe and win32all, and I can not get it to

Can someone explain how to freeze Excel with the new version of py2exe?
The old way isn't working anymore. I used one of the templates
provided, but I kept getting CLSID errors, even when I provide the
typelib in the options menu in setup.

So "--progid" was removed, what replaced it?

It looks to me like the handling of the currency type in an ADODB connecction from Python is broken. Currency data in an Access database is stored as a 64-bit integer, scaled by 10000. In an ADODB recordset, this is returned as a 2-tuple, where the second element is the currency value, but the value is stored as a normal integer, not a lont integer. Thus, it fails for values greater than about $214,700 (2**32 / 10**4). Here is an...
