export aggregated cube data to CSV using SSIS

I have a large sales cube housing most of our sales Measures and Dimensions.  Basically anything I need to get is in there, however I'm trying to build a dashboard view using a tool that uses CSV's which are updated regularly.  I have built several using straight SQL or Sharepoint connectors in SSIS but this time I would like to build one that pulls cube data based on common dimensions (say the current fiscal month or year).  Does anyone have a good tutorial on what tools in the Toolbox I would use to facilitate that?  So far I only have a OLEDB connector that connects to the Cube, but I cannot figure out how to do something as simple as transform the current fiscal year data into a single CSV field?  I do know how to do the Flat File destination, it's just the part from the Source to the Flat File I'm clueless on.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  
 Thanks!

What about using SSRS and create a report over the cubes and then export the report to a CSV file?

You can use Analysis Service Connection and Write MDX query to get result as source in Dataflow and Flat file (CSV) as destination..

MDX query is not straight forward as SQL so you have to do it at own.

Thank you for the response, I'm going to the SSRS route I think since I see it can use Windows File System to drop the CSV which will work for my Dropbox feed that's running the widgets. Thanks again!
