valuation of foreign exchange forward with NPV split for interest vs FX impact?


I have the following business requirement regarding the accounting treatment of the valuation of a foreign exchange forward deal :

1. during the lifetime of the deal


step1. valuation

          the deal should valued at its NPV using the swap points curve (table AT15) => that gives the "VALUE"


step 2. the posting of the deal's value should be SPLIT into TWO components

               a) component 1 = linearly amortized swap points since deal date +2   until valuation date     => to be classified to interest result

               b) component 2 =  VALUE - component 1                                                                                => to be classified to unrealized fx result


So, in fact it is some hybrid combination of the two SAP standard valuation methods

               a) spot/spot + swap accrual + swap valuation (but NO NPV calculation) 

               b) NPV calculation (without any split in components)

2. at maturity

     realized fx result :     calculation based on deal spot rate versus spot rate at maturity

     interest result :          calculation based on deal spot rate vs deal forward rate

Don't see how this "mixted behavior" can be achieved by customizing the valuation process.

Please help.

Best regards,
