I think you need to do it like this:

dateStr = "03nov.2022 09:53:52 AM"

date =, "ddMMMM.yyyy hh:mm:ss a")
print date
#Output: Thu Nov 03 09:53:52 CET 2022

Hi, I didn't understand what you wanted me to do

03 nov.2022 09:53:52 AM is a value that get on my param.
I put script on a button. when I click it, I'm got the error that I have posted


date =,'ddMMMyyyy hh:mm:ss a')


date =,'ddMMMM.yyyy hh:mm:ss a')
