    Here's how I did it - the customer wanted to export Equivalent Radiated Power Level

    erpl_result=ExtAPI.DataModel.GetObjectsByName('Equivalent Radiated Power Level')[0]
    analysis=erpl_result.Parent.Parent # Analysis could be retrieved differently
    dp_id=analysis.WorkingDir.split('\')[-4] # dp number appears in WorkingDir. Simply splitting by /
    user_files_dir=os.path.join(analysis.WorkingDir,'../../../user_files')
    
    file_name=os.path.join(user_files_dir,'erpl_'+dp_id+'.txt') # Filename with dp number
    erpl_result.ExportToTextFile(file_name)
