i already create a module hello.py in following:

def print_func(par):
print par
return


then, i open new window of Python, and type import commands:
import hello.py
and just occur errors:

>>> import hello.py

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<pyshell#0>", line 1, in <module>
import hello.py
File "C:\Python27\lib\hello.py", line 1

The import statement should look like this:import hello. If you include the extension, python will try to find a module named "py".

Apparently on line 1 you have the string "Python 2.7 (r27:82525, Jul 4 2010, 09:01:59) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] on win32". Remove that string or comment it out and try again.
