Allow Posting Override
This field is only accessible if the Allow Rate Change box in EM Company Parameters (Usage tab) is checked.
Check this box to allow overriding the revenue rate for this category/revenue code during usage posting.

Work Units With Usage
This field defaults as checked for all unit-based revenue codes (as defined in EM Revenue Codes).
