Debugging ORM in Visual Studio

I have an auxiliary script that moves an excel spreadsheet into my MySQL database with the Django ORM. I can run the script with the Django environment (python manage.py shell; runpy.run_path(‘my_script.py’) ) but I am not sure how to tell the Debugger in Visual Studio Code to load the debugger. I can use the debugger for my Django webpage (lots of instructions for that), but I don’t know how to use it for my auxillary ORM script.

I’m new to both Django and Visual Studio Code so any suggestions would be helpful.
