Dynamic functionname for import_module object

Next time, please format your code examples as explained here:

About your problem: the code tries to access the function function_name in the module object, which is not what you want. function_name is a string, so you want to retrieve an attribute, the name of which you have as a string. Therefore, you need getattr(module_object, function_name)(). See the documentation for getattr:
