    Below is an example:

        analysis=ExtAPI.DataModel.Project.Model.Analyses[0] # refer to analysis
        newForce=analysis.AddForce() # add force
        newForce.DefineBy = LoadDefineBy.Components # define by components
        newForce.ZComponent.Output.DiscreteValues = [Quantity("1 [N]")] # define Z value
        newForce.YComponent.Output.DiscreteValues = [Quantity("1 [N]")] # define Y value
