Actually, this is how SAS Forecast Studio is designed - you will need to provide data on the leaf level only.
Not sure what you mean by "mass load of items" - would you mind to clarify?

Sorry for my poor choice of words. What I am asking is if you have 50 items and as you said need to load at the leaf level is there a way to do this. We are being told to do it one at a time. Can you use say an Excel form to load all at once?
Thank you very much.

Yes, you will need to organize your demand data using a particular structure - but it is very common to do this.
You will find more details in Chapter 5 "Preparing an Input Data Set" of SAS® Forecast Studio 13.2 User’s Guide.

Thank you so much--our company is just implementing SAS and as a demand planner we are being asked to load the forecasts from APO into the SAS environment. This is fine but on all the new items we have to load as new item down to the leaf level---trying to save some time.
