I've seen this topic here covered numerous times, but none of the answers I've seen seem to work for me, so I'll try to be as specific to my problem as possible.
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)
ImportError: No module named 'file.py'; file is not a package
No 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 directories.
