My code was working fine earlier but now when I run the code I get the following error in my console:


download_dir is not empty! Will now attempt to delete all files

All files have been removed from C:\Users\Documents\NetBeansProjects\Budg

    select.select_by_visible_text("Jan 2018")

AttributeError: 'Select' object has no attribute 'select_by_visible_text'



I have tried everything I have found thus far to make this work to no avail. Here is my existing code that worked:

from import Select

months = ['Jan', 'Feb', 'Mar', 'Apr', 'May', 'Jun', 'Jul', 'Aug', 'Sep', 'Oct', 'Nov', 'Dec']


def select_date(driver, months):        #NEED IT TO SELECT STARTDATE AND CHANGE IT TO JAN 2018 below works as of Feb 7th

    for months in months:

        elem = WebDriverWait(driver, wait_time).until(EC.presence_of_element_located((By.CSS_SELECTOR, 'button[name="btnSubmit"]')))

        select = Select(driver.find_element_by_name('startdate'))

        select.select_by_visible_text("Jan 2018")

Your import statement is incorrect. As of 3.9, it should be
