Seems this page may be useful to you :

I'd also suggest you study Alex's tutorials at 
In particular, the one on Rates Consolidation and Normalisation.

Without wishing to sound rude or condescending, your queries indicate 
that you don't understand the tool very well at all. You will find it 
become a LOT easier to understand (and customise) once you know the 
fundamentals which are well covered in Alex's tutorials. It does take 
some effort to get your head round the way it works initially - it's 
a significantly different type of storage to what most people are 
familiar with.
