import csv
reader = csv.reader(open("some.csv", "rb"))
for row in reader:
print row

it is showing :

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "csv.py", line 1, in <module>
import csv
File "C:\Documents and Settings\meesa02\csv.py", line 2, in <module>
reader = csv.reader(open("some.csv", "rb"))

You almost certainly have a file called "csv.py" in
the current directory. (Maybe even the one that's
running this script?). Rename it to "mycsv.py" or
whatever and try again.

Only *almost* certainly, Tim? *Maybe*? You don't believe what the
above traceback lines are telling you?

It's my natural British diffidence :) We almost never make
unqualified statements.
