ImportError: No module named 'pypyodbc' - python 3.5.2

Hello Experts -

I am writing a python script to connect to a MSAccess database file and I keep getting an annoying error. Based on google search I found you need to install pypyodbc (which I did) and also call the import of the module. However, but, I still get an error.

I have provided the code and the error below:

import pypyodbc as pyodbc


DBSource = 'C:\\Users\\Database\\Desktop\\GA005_test.mdb'
conn = pypyodbc.connect("Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb, *.accdb)};DBQ=C:\\Users\\Database\\Desktop\\GA005_test.mdb;")
cursor = conn.cursor()

DBDest = 'C:\\Users\\Database\\Desktop\\ROWBlank.mdb'
conn2 = pypyodbc.connect("Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb, *.accdb)};DBQ=C:\\Users\\Database\\Desktop\\ROWBlank.mdb;")
cursor2 = conn2.cursor()

SQL = """select *
FROM HRO;"""
for row in cursor.execute(SQL):
    k = row.naam
    print (k)
    cursor2.execute("""insert into ROWBlank.mdb values (?)""", (k))
    conn2.commit()

cursor.close()
conn.close()
cursor2.close()
conn2.close()  

Open in new window


Error:

Traceback (most recent call last):

is pypyodbc.py in the current directory or in the module search path?

Hi David -

How can I verify this?
sj77Author Commented:
Thanks for the pointer David. I researched this and found that I had to put it in the dir for python programs.

I clicked on File on IDLE and clicked open module. From there I typed one that I knew would come up "OS" and it should me the raw py file location: C:\Users\Database\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python35-32\Lib.

I popped in the pypyodbc.py file in there and it worked. Thanks!
