Where have you defined the relationship between the 2 dictionaries?

If you know that all the someys are related to the somex you can do
something like this:

somex = {'unit':'00', 'type':'processing'}

somey1 = {'comment':'fair', 'code':'aaa'}
somey2 = {'comment':'fair', 'code':'bbb'}
somey3 = {'comment':'fair', 'code':'ccc'}

# Put all the dicts in a List
dictList = []
dictList.append(somey1)
dictList.append(somey2)
dictList.append(somey3)

for dict in dictList: #Iterate over the lists
    print ("%s, %s") % (somex['unit'], dict['code']) #Print just the info
that you want

I'll leave writing it to a file as an exercise in Googling.
