Call a function from another file

0 votes

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.

I've tried:

from file.py import function(a,b)

But I get the 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 the file import function, and then call the function using a function(a, b). The reason why this may not work is because the 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 a.py and b.py are in the same directory.
