Call a function from another file?
Set_up: I have a .py file for each function I need to use in a program.
In this program i need to call the function from the external files
from file.py import function(a,b)
But i get an error
ImportError: No module named 'file.py'; file is not a package
How do I fix this problem?
There isn't any need to add
file.py while importing. Just write
from file import function , and then call the function using
function(a, b) . The reason why this may not work, is because
file is one of Python's core modules, so I suggest you change the name of your file.
Note that if you're trying to import functions from
a.py to a file called
b.py , you will need to make sure that
b.py are in the same directory.
