@Mercer answer your own question and let others know how it is solved. Spare me the effort!

@Mercer that is 0 4 * * * /opt/scripts/importData.py

comment Script not run with cron
@Mercer are you even reading my comments? You don't need the */1* .. Also remove bash .. You are not running a bash script. On top of your crontab put PATH=/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/games:/usr/games:/opt/scripts then the second line * * * * * /opt/scripts/importData.py

@Mercer can you update your question and add the changes you made?

@Mercer Alright, so now try to add to crontab the line: PATH=/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/games:/usr/games:/opt/scripts

@Mercer, The problem is the PATH variable which needs to be defined within cron explicitly. /opt/scripts is not in your path e.g echo "$PATH" won't show it. You can add e.g PATH=/opt/scripts:/usr/bin:/etc/etc/etc.... on top of the crontab and solve the problem. As a side note: */1 * * * * is equal to * * * * *

comment list all c files in sub directories and their parent directory
@tomato Can you be more specific? What is last directory name in this case? If the files are created by the user itself and the username is most likely equal to the home directory name then this find command will work.

comment list all c files in sub directories and their parent directory
Probably because you are running find as a normal user. You cannot access files on anothers home directory. put sudo or su -c 'find.....' in front of the command.
