how to fix modulenotfounderror no module named django-multiselectfield

Open your terminal in your project’s root directory and install the django-multiselectfield module.

# 👇️ in a virtual environment or using Python 2
pip install django-multiselectfield

# 👇️ for python 3 (could also be pip3.10 depending on your version)
pip3 install django-multiselectfield

# 👇️ if you get permissions error
sudo pip3 install django-multiselectfield

# 👇️ if you don’t have pip in your PATH environment variable
python -m pip install django-multiselectfield

# 👇️ for python 3 (could also be pip3.10 depending on your version)
python3 -m pip install django-multiselectfield

# 👇️ for Anaconda
conda install -c conda-forge django-multiselectfield

The Python error “ModuleNotFoundError: No module named django-multiselectfield” occurs for multiple reasons:

  1. Not having the django-multiselectfield package installed by running pip install django-multiselectfield.
  2. Installing the package in a different Python version than the one you’re using.
  3. Installing the package globally and not in your virtual environment.
  4. Your IDE running an incorrect version of Python.
  5. Naming your module django-multiselectfield.py which would shadow the official module.
  6. Declaring a variable named django-multiselectfield which would shadow the imported variable.

If the error persists, get your Python version and make sure you are installing the package using the correct Python version.

# 👇️ Checking version of python
python –version

For example, my Python version is 3.10.4

So I would install the django-multiselectfield package with pip3.10 install django-multiselectfield

pip3.10 install django-multiselectfield

# 👇️ if you get permissions error use pip3 (NOT pip3.X)
sudo pip3 install django-multiselectfield

Notice that the version number corresponds to the version of pip I’m using.

If the PATH for pip is not set up on your machine, replace pip with python3 -m pip.

# 👇️ make sure to use your version of Python, e.g. 3.10
python3 -m pip install django-multiselectfield

If the “No module named django-multiselectfield” error persists, try restarting your IDE and development server / script.

You can check if you have the django-multiselectfield package installed by running the pip show django-multiselectfield command.

# 👇️ check if you have django-multiselectfield installed
pip3 show django-multiselectfield

# 👇️ if you don’t have pip setup in PATH
python3 -m pip show django-multiselectfield

The pip show django-multiselectfield command will either state that the package is not installed or show a bunch of information about the package, including the location where the package is installed.

If the package is not installed, make sure your IDE is using the correct version of Python.

If you are using a virtual environment, make sure you are installing django-multiselectfield in your virtual environment and not globally.

You can try creating a virtual environment if you don’t already have one.

# 👇️ use correct version of Python when creating VENV
python3 -m venv venv

# 👇️ activate on Unix or MacOS
source venv/bin/activate

# 👇️ activate on Windows (cmd.exe)
venv\Scripts\activate.bat

# 👇️ activate on Windows (PowerShell)
venv\Scripts\Activate.ps1

# 👇️ install django-multiselectfield in virtual environment
pip install django-multiselectfield

Your virtual environment will use the version of Python that was used to create it.

If the error persists, make sure you haven’t named a module in your project as django-multiselectfield.py because that would shadow the original django-multiselectfield module.

You also shouldn’t be declaring a variable named django-multiselectfield as that would also shadow the original module.

If the error is not resolved, try to uninstall the django-multiselectfield package and then install it.

# 👇️ check if you have django-multiselectfield installed
pip3 show django-multiselectfield

# 👇️ if you don’t have pip set up in PATH
python3 -m pip show django-multiselectfield

# 👇️ uninstall django-multiselectfield
pip3 uninstall django-multiselectfield

# 👇️ if you don’t have pip set up in PATH
python3 -m pip uninstall django-multiselectfield

# 👇️ install django-multiselectfield
pip3 install django-multiselectfield

# 👇️ if you don’t have pip set up in PATH
python3 -m pip install django-multiselectfield

Try restarting your IDE and development server/script.

You can also try to upgrade the version of the django-multiselectfield package.

pip3 install django-multiselectfield –upgrade

# 👇️ if you don’t have pip set up in PATH
python3 -m pip install django-multiselectfield –upgrade

The Python “ModuleNotFoundError: No module named django-multiselectfield” occurs when we forget to install the django-multiselectfield module before importing it or install it in an incorrect environment.
