If you have a string and want to create a Datetime object out of it in Python, then you can use the Datetime Parse Time method, as follows:

from datetime import datetime
your_datetime = datetime.strptime('May 31 2021  1:23PM', '%Y-%m-%d')

There are 2 very useful functions of datetime, namely:

  • strptime – Parse a string
  • strftime – Format a string

A common format you may be looking for is:

%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S
