Thanks for quick response....   
By the way I not a developer so any extra details are appreciated.

I think my problem is that I don't have the DCOracle package installed
correclty?  I copied the .so's created by the make  to the dcoracle
directory as specified in the README.txt in src dir.  I added the dcoracle
directory to my Unix path and  my pythonpath.  
What else do I need to be able to import dcoracle? 

Thanks again,

 Jim Turney

	Please read the docs. It is not suggested to use directly the oci_
	Instead import the DCOracle package - this should fix your problem.
