You can use the totals of two or more cost elements by
creating a cost element group first includes all the required cost elements.
Then you can enter the cost element group in the cost element group field of
the receiver tracing factor tab.
Sender: Cost Center A with $100
Receiver: Cost Center B and C
Cost element group ”CEG” contains cost elements 400000 and
Cost center B has costs of $50 on cost element 400000 and
$50 on cost element 420000, which is a total of $100 on the cost element group.
Cost center B has costs of $100 on cost element
400000 and $200 on cost element 420000, which is a total of $300 on the cost
So if this cost element group was used in the
receiver tracing factor tab then the cycle would send 25% from CCR A to CCR B
and 75% from CCR A to CCR C.
This is because CCR B has tracing factor 100 /
400 and CCR C has tracing factor 300 /
