Python / COM / Word

P: n/a
I'm having a little trouble trying to automate Word (2002). I'm
hoping to be able to create and process documents relatively independently
of any existing open word documents. e.g. When I have an existing document
open and I enter the following at the command line any documents I create
are visible, until setting wordApp.Visible to False, when all the documents
are hidden.
import win32com.client
wordApp = win32com.client.Dispatch('Word.Application')
wordApp.Visible True wordApp.Visible = False

Ideally I'd like to have independent 'Word instances', so I can hack around
to my heart's content without jeopardising documents opened and created by
some hapless user (which would also be me). At the very least I need to
keep the documents I'm creating hidden, whilst leaving existing documents
visible. Any ideas? Cheers.
