I have dimesion with ragged Parent-Child hierarchy. For instance organizational structure of a company. Commonly the hierarchy shows names of hierarchy items but now I need to create MDX query where result on axis 1 will be ID (primary key of dimesion) of item and name of item, but main is to show id.

{[Product].[MetaGroupHierarchy].children} ON 1

With mentioned MDX query the result is :


And I would like to have:
ID1, name1
ID2, name2
ID3, name3



I do not know how to construct MDX query in this case.  Because main dimesion key has to have NameColumn property set to filed with name of item.
