I want to store the current time (i.e. now) in a variable, and then use that variable to create one or more rows.
At the beginning of my script I have "import sqlobject", and where I tried to assign a value of sqlobject.DateTime.now to a variable, I got an error saying "...AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'DateTime'." There were similar errors when I tried SQLBuilder.func.NOW(), tried "from sqlobject import *", etc.
How do I say "assign the current time to a variable" so the variable can be directly used to set a DateTime field?
