Noob | datetime question

P: n/a
I'm having trouble finding exactly what I need by googling, so thought
I'd try to get a quick answer from the group. This seems like something
that should be dead simple.

I need to generate a string value of a date in the format YYYYMMDD that
is 97 days in the future. The datetime module is brand new to me, and
I'm not sure how to do this. Can someone help me out here?

TIA

With the datetime module you can do something like:

pyimport datetime
pyd = datetime.date.today()
pyprint d
2006-11-14
pyd97 = d + datetime.timedelta(days=97)
pyprint d97
2007-02-19
pyfmt_d97 = d97.isoformat().replace('-', '')
pyprint fmt_d97
20070219
TIA
