It's fine so far. Computer programs (especially ones in python) are text
files which are formatted in a specific way which can be understood and
executed by Python.
When you write your program, you use an editor like notepad and save the
program as a .py file.
You're okay this far. The next stage is to ask Python to execute this
program. You do that by typing
and hitting enter.

How have you tried opening it in python? Can you show us your program?
P.S. It's a good idea to use a proper Subject line for your mail. :)
