dynamic naming a dimension in SSAS 2008

Last Modified: 2016-02-14
I am designing a cube for a database that allows custom captions for various field / tables. I was wondering if it is possible to have the name of the dimension dynamically assigned based on a query?
For example a DIMENSION is called CUSTOM1 but there is a caption table that has the user assigned name to this. Therefore would actually like this DIMENSION to have the caption name.

Using SQL 2008 OLAP.

Any other ideas?
