TM1 Open Source Tool Kit

Over the quiet Christmas period I am going to do play around with developing a workbook full of useful vba code for anyone to use. I aim for this to be an open source collaboration that anyone can contribute to.

I will be including hopefully:
  • Examples of working with the TM1 API
  • Treeviews of TM1 data
  • Select a TM1 view and see the equivilant MDX statement
  • Select a view and export as xml
  • Dynamic form for text entry
  • Example MDX reporting
  • Robert Gardiner's TM1 kill module
  • Anything else that people would like to include

Send me an email if anyone would like to help with the first version

Andy Pope's website has some fantatic progress bars that you can download and use in your applications:
