Has anyone ever been able to feed a member name back into essbase as a data value? The essbase string functions don't seem like they could accomplish this but I could be wrong:

i.e. assuming "12345" is an a member in the entity dim and "dept_number" is an Account member
"Dept_Number" = @currmbr("Entity")

what I'm after is someway to cast a string to number

Thanks
