Depreciation area for Group Currency


we have the following issue in Asset accounting area.

Currently depreciation area 30 for group currency is getting APC Vlaues and depreciation terms from depreciation 01(Book depreciation). But we need to change the usefull life of depreciation area 30 ( Group currency) to 15 years, where as depreciation area 01 is having usefull life of 10 years. We have also also assigned currency type( group currency) to depreciation area 30. In order to change the usefull life we have removed the indicator for "Identical depreciation terms copied". This process allowed us to create assets with different usefull life for group currency depreciation area. But this is not allowing us to do F-90( Aquisition transactions); it is giving us the following error message.

Message no. AC359


There is a currency type entered in the Customizing definition of area 31. This means that this depreciation area has to adopt its acquisition values and depreciation terms (without change) from area 01, which posts its values automatically to Financial Accounting. In addition,reference depreciation area 01 has to be managed in local currency.

does any one face the similar issue. If you have faced similar type of situation please share your ideas.
