Fixed Assets - Parallel Currecies


Dear FA Experts ,

I have a very interesting Fixed Asset scenario. I'm trying to configure parallel currencies for my current client and have to make depreciation postings (as a result of AFAB) also post in 'Group Currency'. We have USD (Group currency), Mexican Pesos and CAD as the three currencies. The scenario is:

a) First, I need to load Mexican Asset 123 acquired in 01/2005 with NBV of 100 MXN for Book '01' and $10 USD (@ historical exchange rate, not the 'M' rate) for Dep Area '02'. Let's say, @ 'M' rate, it would be $9.

b) Then, when I depreciate this asset, it needs to post depreciation in Local Currency (in pesos), company code currency (pesos again) and group currency (USD, again @ historical rate not 'M' rate). I've obviously not been able to post it in Group currecy at all (doc type 'AF'), M rate or historic.

Is it possible with some config or are we talking an enhancement/user-exit?

Kindly help!
