HI Fiona,
Are you using Excel 2003 or Excel 2007? I dont think at this time Excel 2007 supports writeback.  Your best bet would be use VBA and code it in.
There is a very good online resource written by Charlie Maitland (see attached link) http://charliem.wordpress.com/2006/07/03/writebacks-to-ssas-2005/ which would be helpful to you.
I am sorry that I cannot help you further on this,

Thank you so much! You have been a great help!

I did try the Excel 2003 Add-in. It supports the writeback for cube but not for dimension. Dimension writeback is what I'm looking for.

I am looking for writeback solution for Excel 2007 as well. Any thoughts?

The Charlie Maitland's link you provided, I 'm totally new in the VBA or ADO, do you have reference how to use Charlie's sample code? a starting point?
