I think it is likely that you have SPSS 14.0.2 but the wrong version of the Plug-In, since running spss from Python was added via the 14.0.1 Plug-In. Also access to the case data from Python was added in that release. Upgrading SPSS to 14.0.2 does not upgrade the Plug-In. You need to uninstall the Plug-In you have, download the 14.0.1 version from Developer Central (www.spss.com/devcentral), and install it.
Another way to check is to enter the following Python statement
from spss import Cursor
If you get a message like
ImportError: cannot import name Cursor
then you can be sure, since Cursor was part of 14.0.1 (14.0.1 works for 14.0.2 also).
If none of this solves the problem, please contact Technical Support for further help.

Here is some more Information:
- I CAN run python from the Syntax window. But I CAN'T run spss from the
- I patched to 14.0.2 before I started to use python.
