How to make calculated member for Children names starting with 'Ab'

How to make calculated member for Children names starting with 'Ab'

(OP)
Hi,

I'm kinda new to MDX and wondering if i could get some help on writing a query that will give me the names of 'children'
that begin with "ab"

I've got this so far:
with [Customer].[Customers].[A-Z].[AB] as 'IIF({[Customer].[Customers].[A-Z].&[A].children})'

But not sure where to say children that start with 'Ab'

Thanks for any advice.

You are going to Have to utilize the MembertoStr function to then invoke the VBA SubString function.
