Call a function from another file?


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 a.py and b.py are in the same directory.


First of all you do not need a .py.

If you have a file a.py and inside you have some functions:

def b():  # Something  return 1def c():  # Something  return 2

And you want to import them in z.py you have to write

from a import b, c


You can do this in 2 ways. First is just to import the specific function you want from file.py. To do this use

from file import function

Another way is to import the entire file

import file as fl

Then you can call any function inside file.py using

fl.function(a,b)
