    dataextract module does not load

    Ana Echeverri

      I installed the dataextract python library.  I get no error messages. However when I try to "import dataextract", the statement fails with the following message.  Can someone help me figure out what the problem is?


      import dataextract



      Traceback (most recent call last):

        File "<pyshell#0>", line 1, in <module>

          import dataextract

        File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\dataextract\__init__.py", line 15, in <module>

          from Base import *
