Is it possible to automate the splitting of an expense in quickbooks?

i.e.

Invoice For $500.00
Account is 66000 Payroll Expense

I have 3 classes:
Sales
Service
Body Shop

I want to split the expense:
Sales 20%
Service 60%
Body Shop 20%

But I do not want to do the math....
I have seen in other accounting systems the ability to create a %account that is set to split an expense automatically.

i.e.
Account %66000
will split the $500.00 between the three classes by a preset %

Thanks for any help.

QB does not have an allocation Feature
However,  I have the following work-around


1. Use the item tab on expense transactions
     the  QTY field represents the %
       so 25%  is entered as .25  and the amount field
     to represent the total amount of the bill.

2. to get started,
   set up items in your items list
    type = Other chart
    name= same as the chart of account
    account = chart of account.

3. If you have to allocate over many items, you can
   enter your items and % , and then memorize the expense transaction.
   dont enter an amount or vendor name.
   When ready to enter an expense, go to the memorized trx list  to
   start your transaction
