What Python version are you targeting?

It would save everyone a lot of time if you quoted the homework 
assignment directly.  Also, be more careful about typos.  Is it a date 
file, or a data file?

You can create an object very easily.  a = object().  You can add 
attributes to many objects by simply saying
     a.attrib = 42

Unfortunately you can't do that to an "object" class instance.  So you 
need to clarify.

Now, you used dictionary syntax, so perhaps you didn't mean create an 
object, but create a dict.

a = dict()
a["PrinterA"] = "batch1", "batch2", "batch3"
print a

{'PrinterA': ('batch1', 'batch2', 'batch3')}

What part of the assignment is giving you trouble?  What have you 
written so far?
