User Reviews

  • Some nice features (e.g., named column retrieval from recordsets) and a few bugs. The biggest problem is that this page doesn't appear to give any clues that the project has moved to GitHub (search for mhammond and pywin32 -- SourceForge won't let me post a link in this review, which I only filed so I could let others avoid wasting their time here, as I have). Don't bother filing bug reports or other support requests here. :-)
