You may want to manipulate the date and tile and while doing this you may encounter the error Nameerror: name datetime is not defined. In this post, you will know how to solve this error.
What is Datatime?
The datetime is a Python module that allows you to manipulate date and time. And for this, it has various classes like dateime, date, time,timedelta, etc. Let’s know each of them in brief.
datetime: This class gives you details for both date and time, including the year, month, day, hour, minute, second, and microsecond.
date: This class is only for date and does not include time.
time: Only represents time without date.
timedelta: If you want to find the difference between time or date then you can use this class. It allows you to do arithmetic calculations on date or time.
Why the Nameerror: name datetime is not defined Error comes ?
The NameError: name ‘datetime’ is not defined error occurs when you try to use the datetime module in Python, but the module has not been imported or is not accessible in your current scope.
You will get the Namerror when you will run the below lines of code.
date = datetime.datetime.now()
Nameerror: name 'datetime' is not defined
The solution of name datetime is not defined Error
To solve this error, you need to import the datetime module using one of the following steps.
Step 1: Importing the datetime module directly
Step 2: Importing only the datetime class from the datetime module
from datetime import datetime
Now after importing the datetime module if you use the datetime.datetime.now() function then you will not get the NameError.
After reading the above solution we have concluded that in most of cases the Nameerror: name datetime is not defined error will come when you use the datetime function without importing it. The above solution will solve you error if you follow the process.
