In this recipe, we are going to use the Essbase Outline Extractor to extract the meta-data from the Sample Basic database in parent-child format. The Essbase Outline Extractor is a free product and can be downloaded from AppliedOLAP's website: http://www.appliedolap.com/free-tools/outline-extractor. The version you should consider for Essbase 184.108.40.206 for now is essbase_outline_extractor_11.1.2. This tool can assist you in extracting your metadata from an existing Essbase cube. We can then use its output to load Data Relationship Management (DRM) or a relational environment.
