On object wrapped in Dynamic evaluates to that object wrapped in Dynamic. It's 
a bit like wrapping that object in Hold[]...the exporters won't really 
understand the wrapper or know what to do with it.  You need to pass Export[] 
the data directly, not the data enmeshed in other structures like Dynamic or

You should read both the "Introduction to Dynamic" and "Advanced Dynamic 
Functionality" tutorial (referenced at the end of the documentation on Dynamic), 
as well as my MathGroup post here... 

...if you want to more deeply grok exactly how Dynamic works and how it 
interacts with the system.
