ansyxyz is on a distinguished road
I run a parameterized simulation and I would like to save the results after the harmonic analysis of each Design Point as a table in an Excel file. The result parameters, which I want to export, are "frequency", "amplitude" and "phase angle". They are already shown in Ansys Workbench as a frequency diagram and also as a table (see attachment).

The name of the file to be saved should contain the current date and time or a number with iteration, otherwise the results of the parametric study would always overwrite itself.

I have already written a code, but I have following problems:
- I defined a fixed Node by it’s ID (here: 179778;see attachment) to get the results “amplitude” and “phase”. But I would like to get the results for a variable point, which should be defined before by a name.
- Moreover, I am not sure whether the code for the iteration of the name of the file is correct.

/title, threedof.inp, three dof vibration class model

! ***************** output frequencies *******************
/output,threedof,frq ! write out frequency list to ascii file .frq
/output,term ! returns output to terminal

!***************** output eigenvectors *********************
!define nodes for output
/output,threedof,eig ! write out eigenvectors to ascii file .eig

threedof,,rfrq ! frequency response results
xvar,0 ! display versus frequency
lines,1000 ! specifies the length of a printed page for frequency response listing
Test1=179778 ! node ID of the point, where the force is applied
nsol,2,Test1,u,y,duy ! specifies nodal data to be stored in results file
! u - displacement, y direction
! note that nsol,1 is frequency vector

my_path(1) = 'c:\meinpfadzurdatei\''

iter_file_path(1) = strcat(my_path(1),'my_iteration_file')


prcplx,1 ! stores phase angle in asci file .dat


warten(1,1) = warten(1,1)+1 ! increase iterator

*cfopen,strcat(my_path(1),'my_iteration_file'),'tx t'

same question over here. Anybody knows the answer? I want to export automatically the frequency response for several nodal points.
