the console is telling me that datetime does not have an attribute called strptime?
not sure what i am missing here...
## Examples # to_string(datetime_object) => "24 September 2012" # from_string("09/24/12 18:30", "%m/%d/%y %H:%M") => datetime import datetime def to_string (datetime1): new_date = datetime1.strftime("%d %B %Y") return new_date def from_string (date_string, strftime1): date_object = datetime.strptime(date_string, strftime1) return date_object
The challenge says that
module 'datetime' has no attribute 'strptime'. However, the module
datetime has a class
datetime which has a method
It should be sufficient to change your first line to
from datetime import datetime, but the challenge does not accept that as a solution. Instead, you can change
date_object = datetime.strptime(date_string, strftime1) to
date_object = datetime.datetime.strptime(date_string, strftime1)
