Thank you Steve for your response.
I pasted only part of the code.I am new to Python and
using 2.7.My actual code is as below, If I run the below code I am
getting the error "TypeError: 'str' object is not callable" ,Now I
found that I am using the "str" variable which is  a function.Thanks
a
lot for your help.
fileopen = open('C:/MPython/test.txt', 'r')
str = fileopen.read()
print str
fileopen.close()
lines1 = sum(1 for line in open('C:/MPython/test.txt'))
wfile = open('C:/MPython/test.txt', 'a')
wfile.write("\n")
wfile.write(str(lines1).zfill(9))
wfile.close()
