2. The output identifier to prorate to. The output identifier value is the value that appears in the CSR or CSR+ file records that are created by the proration process.

3. The percentage of resource units to prorate to the output identifier.
4. Note: Rresource units can be prorated at any percentage. The prorate percentage can be less than or greater than 100 percent. The individual rate code that to prorate or All to prorate all rate codes.

Note:
Examples
Assume that you have an application that controls print in a centralized environment and that you want to split all resources used by overhead account code AAABB among three different accounts: A1, A2, and A3. A1 on average uses about 50 percent of the resources assigned to the AAABB account, A2 uses about 30 percent, and A3 uses about 20 percent. To prorate the costs associated with this application among the three accounts, create the following comma-delimited table:
AAABB,A1,50,All
AAABB,A2,30,All
AAABB,A3,20,All
You can also split individual resources among multiple accounts. Using the preceding example, assume that the only resources from account AAABB that you want to prorate are represented by the rate codes Z001 and Z002. Create the following table:
AAABB,A1,50,Z001
AAABB,A2,30,Z001
AAABB,A3,20,Z001
AAABB,A1,50,Z002
AAABB,A2,30,Z002
AAABB,A3,20,Z002
In this example, all resources other than Z001 and Z002 would still be charged to the AAABB account.
If you want to charge account AAABB for a portion of the resources used, for example you want to charge account AAABB 60 percent for all resources and account AACCC 40 percent, create the following table:
AAABB,AAABB,60,All
AAABB,AAACC,40,All
