I tried using multiple import methods:

Having problems running test script as below:

Have tried recommendations here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/11983609/how-to-fix-issue-with-datetime-datetime-which-has-no-attribute-timedelta

Any further assistance would be appreciated.

from datetime import datetime

now = datetime.now()


delta = datetime.timedelta(hours=5)

Hi Gregory - For this challenge you don't need timedelta. The only import you need is:

import datetime

Once you create the variable now you can do the last two tasks using replace().

Thanks Kourosh. It was not so much for the challenge, it was more to do with my setup, where I use Python on my MAC and within the environment, I could only get this to work on the actual python console rather than running as an actual script. Normally I will write a script first and test, before using the challenges etc.
