AttributeError: module 'datetime' has no attribute 'strptime' in Python

Dung Do Tien May 28 2022 192

 Hi guys, I am a newbie in Python and today I learn about datetime, I want to format datetime to yyyy-mm-dd HH:MM by using strptime() function of datetime module, It is very simple like this:

 import datetime
from datetime import date

today = date.today().strftime("%d/%m/%y %H:%M")
dt = datetime.strptime(today, "%d/%m/%y %H:%M")

print(dt)

I ran code above and got an exception AttributeError: module 'datetime' has no attribute 'strptime'. Detail here:

 Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "main.py", line 5, in <module>
    dt = datetime.strptime(today, "%d/%m/%y %H:%M")
AttributeError: module 'datetime' has no attribute 'strptime'

I'm using Python version 3.9.8 and windows 11.

Thank for any solutions.

    To solve the error, call the strptime() method on the datetime class instead. like this:

     import datetime
    from datetime import date
    
    today = date.today().strftime("%d/%m/%y %H:%M")
    dt = datetime.datetime.strptime(today, "%d/%m/%y %H:%M")
    
    print(dt)

    #Output

    Another solution: change the way to import datetime module, please change:

     #from
    import datetime
    #to
    from datetime import datetime

    Like this: 

     from datetime import datetime
    from datetime import date
    
    today = date.today().strftime("%d/%m/%y %H:%M")
    dt = datetime.strptime(today, "%d/%m/%y %H:%M")
    
    print(dt)

    #Output
