SSIS allows data retrieval from any source for which you've got an OLE DB driver.  There is an OLE DB driver for SSAS, so yes, you can retrieve data from a cube.

On SSIS 2008, the driver is labelled "Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Analysis Services 10.0".

hi, yes as Valentino said, it could get the data from SSAS but not using MDX, just a straight load connection.

Hey Jason,

Why not MDX?  I tried it out (using the regular OLE DB Source in the data flow) and it seems to work fine (if you ignore the warning)?
