The Execute method executes XMLA commands provided in the Command element and returns any resulting data using either the XMLA Rowset data type (for tabular result sets) or the XMLA MDDataSet data type (for multidimensional result sets.)

The following code sample is an example of an Execute method call that contains an Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) SELECT statement.

   <Command>
      <Statement>
         SELECT [Measures].MEMBERS ON COLUMNS FROM [Adventure Works]
      </Statement>
   </Command>
   <Properties>
