You must add the variables to the document as local variables, at the
end of the document, like this:

# Local Variables:
# my-latex-export-path: "~/path/myfile.tex"
# my-html-export-path: "~/path/myfile.html"
# End:

But (it's important, I didn't tell you, sorry) before you must globally
define the variables with nil value, so that you don't get an error in
other documents:

(setq my-latex-export-path nil
      my-html-export-path nil)

With this 'define-advice' procedure you don't need the other code I gave
you. You can export in the usual way, using the dispatcher. The only
difference is that in any document where these variables exist, the
resulting file will be saved in the directory/name specified in the
variables, depending on whether you export to latex or html.

To add more cases, like odt, simply:

(1) you define a new variable:

  (setq my-latex-export-path nil
	my-html-export-path nil
	my-odt-export-path nil)

and locally:

# Local Variables:
# my-latex-export-path: "~/path/myfile.tex"
# my-html-export-path: "~/path/myfile.html"
# my-odt-export-path: "~/path/myfile.html"
# End:

(2) And you add a new condition at the end of the define-advice:

(if (and my-latex-export-path
	(cond ((equal extension ".tex")
	      ((equal extension ".html")
	      ((equal extension ".odt")
      (apply old-func args)))

It means that: if those variables exist, it returns as a result the
path/name that you have specified for each case. Otherwise, the
org-export-output-file-name function is executed normally.

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
