SSAS Filter Unused Dimension Members

I am using SSAS 2008 (Excel is the primary front end).  I am wondering if there is a way that I can set the dimension up so that when you put it into a filter area of a pivot table it only shows the members relevant to the cube.  If I setup a related table in my data source view and use that to create my dimension when the user puts it into the filter area they have to go through all the records that are irrelevant to the cube.  In the past we have setup a view and then calculated the dimenions from the view so it only contains records that exist in the fact table.  Is there a way to make this work without using the view?
