Query TM1 non-numeric measures

I am working on a proof of concept within SPSS Modeler that queries TM1 data, models future expenses, and loads the forecast back into TM1. We are close to finishing the POC, but we need to be able to query non-numeric measures from TM1 to complete full automation.

To prepare the forecast for loading back into TM1, we must choose leaf level members. We have those leaf level members loaded into a TM1 cube as a non-numeric measure. This will allow us to loop through thousands of forecasts automatically with zero manual interaction.

We have demonstrated the current process at conferences, and customers ask why we are using Microsoft Excel as our import source, and we need to show them that our own tools can communicate with one another. This RFE will drive external revenue for IBM, and improve our internal modeling practices.
