How to run Excel Solver function from Python

I am trying to write a Python script file which analyses data in an
iterative manner. During each iteration, I wish to utilise the Solver
function in Excel to perform some constrained, non-linear fitting to
the data. I have a VBA macro which runs the Solver, and am using
self.xlapp = win32com.client.dynamic.Dispatch("Excel.Applicatio n")
..
..
..
self.xlapp.run(macro)

I am using the Python script to interface with another software called
ABAQUS and am executing the script through the ABAQUS Python
interpreter (which is Python 2.0). Howvever, when I run the script I
get the error

'Solver : An unexpected internal error has occurred, or available
memory was exhausted'

Could anyone please provide some explanation to this problem? The
macro and Solver run fine if I don't call from the Python script.
Thank you and any help is much appreciated.

Having widened my search, I found that this problem seems to be
related to Excel itself and not many have found a solution. But I
found this and it works a treat!!
