Anyone know why this gives an incorrect answer? def to_string(dtm): return datetime.strftime(dtm, '%d %B %Y')

Challenge Task 1 of 2 for Dates and Times in python won't pass with the above code. I've tested it and it does what's required. Any help appreciated. Thanks!

timestrings.py
## Examples
# to_string(datetime_object) => "24 September 2012"
# from_string("09/24/12 18:30", "%m/%d/%y %H:%M") => datetime
def to_string(dtm):
  return datetime.strftime(dtm, '%d %B %Y')

Thanks! Was testing it in an environment which I'd imported all of datetime into. So didn't need the extar datetime module qualifier.
