Depreciation calculation - Acquisition value less unplanned depreciation



What I am trying to do is have ordinary depreciation calculate on the acquisition value of the asset less unplanned depreciation. I saw a posting on SCN that says:

The following base values are defined in the system:

Acquisition value less unplanned depreciation


This seems to reflect exactly what I want to do but I don't know how to make SAP execute depreciation in this manner.

How do I set up a depreciation key, or the asset, so that the depreciation is calculated on NBV that is the acquisition value less unplanned depreciation that is posted in the current period?

Example of what I want to do:

Straight line asset acquisition value - $5000

UL - 10 years

Expired UL - 1 month

Remaining UL - 9 years 11 months

Unplanned depreciation recorded in SAP - $41.67

Ordinary depreciation calculated on NBV of $5,000 - 41.67 = $4,958.33

Ordinary straight line depreciation calculation is $4,958.33 / 119 periods (9 years 11 months) = $41.67

Thank you for any insight you have,
