Is there a conflict of libraries here?


"Right, because the name "datetime" points to the class datetime in the

Ok, how do I unpoint/repoint a "datetime" to let the two locations work?

Absolutely did not know any of this.  
Libraries are a slow learning process for me....

At this point, the name "datetime" points to a module.

By that, you have reassigned the name "datetime" to point to a class defined
in the datetime module.

Right, because the name "datetime" points to the class datetime in the
module datetime.  The class, unlike the module, has no "datetime"

attribute.

 

Apologies if you already knew this.  I wasn't sure.
