    This tutorial explains how to do datetime (Datetime to String, String to datetime and days subtraction from datetime) conversion in Python

    Abstract


    In this tutorial we will convert Datetime to String, String to datetime and days subtraction from datetime.

     

    Implementation


    In below mention code we will use strftime, strptime and timedelta for datetime conversion.

    Converting Datetime into String

    from datetime import datetime, timedelta
    
    #datetime to string conversion
    t = datetime(2018, 2, 23, 0, 0)
    value = t.strftime('%m/%d/%Y')
    print value
    

    Output:

    02/23/2018

    Converting String into Datetime

    from datetime import datetime, timedelta
    
    #string to Datetime conversion
    val = '02/23/2018'
    date_time = datetime.strptime(val, '%m/%d/%Y')
    print date_time
    

    Output:

    2018-02-23 00:00:00
    

    Subtracting days from Datetime

    from datetime import datetime, timedelta
    
    #days subtraction from datetime
    days_to_subtract = 7
    dt = datetime(2018, 2, 23, 0, 0)
    date_subtract = dt - timedelta(days=days_to_subtract)
    print date_subtract
    

    Output:

    2018-02-16 00:00:00
