    If the OLAP Db supports ODBC, you could use:
    DBI and
    DBD::ODBC .

                    "Imaginary friends are a sign of a mental disorder if they cause distress, including antisocial behavior. Religion frequently meets that description"

        The problem with using ODBC is not the connectivity. I need a perl object to hold the resulting data set from a MDX query. I need to connect and submit an MDX statement to execute against the server and have a result set returned. Is there a perl object that will allow me to do that?
