Wrong Monthly Depreciation with Straight Line Method When Asset Value Increase

Dear all experts;

I'm looking for your help and consultancy in my case as follows:

I created a new fixed asset using Straight Line Depreciation with these parameters:

- Depreciation Start Date: 01.01.2014

- Useful life: 24 months

- APC 24,000

=> Monthly depreciation: 1,000 / month and

January 2014 1,000 (posted already)

February 2014: 1,000 (planned)

March 2014: 1,000 (planned)

.......

November 2015: 1,000 (planned)

December 2015: 1,000 (planned)

After that, I posted amount increase(value 2640) for this asset on 02.01.2014 (asset value date). And the system shows value of monthly depreciation as below:

January 2014 1,000 (posted already)

February 2014: 1,220 (planned)

March 2014: 1,110 (planned)

.......

November 2015: 1,110 (planned)

December 2015: 1,110 (planned)

Which means the system would still distribute the depreciation among 24 months.

My requirement is that increased value should be depreciated only among the remaining life (22 months) as my calculation below:

January 2014 1,000 (posted already)

February 2014: 1,000 (planned)

March 2014: 1,120 (planned)

.......

November 2015: 1,120 (planned)

December 2015: 1,120 (planned)

Below is my configuration:

Base method: 0011   Ordinary: percentage from useful life

Decl.-bal. method: 001    0.00x / 0.0000% / 0.0000%

Prd cont: Z02    11/11/11/11

Multilev.meth.: Z01     0.0000%, net book value with remaining life

Multiple shift: Increase in deprec., no increase in exp. useful life

Many thanks,
