Derived Depreciation Area didn´t work as Expected

Hello Everybody.

Hope things are good for you all.

My name is Alberto Santos. I´m writting from Brazil.

Could you please help me with an issue regarding Derived Depr Area ?
Derived Depr Area didn´t work as Expected here.
We have been configurated the Derived Depreciation Area that post
Depreciation values in General Ledger.
It is a result between Dep Area 70 less Dep Area 01, as following

Area 71 = Area 70 - Area 01.

Each Dep Area has your own Depreciation Key. Except the Derived Dep
Area71 (Why is not allowed assign Dep Key to the Derived Dep Areas ?)
The usefull life are different to each Dep Area (Area 01 and Area 70).
Dep Area 70 Does not post.
We need that the Planned Depreciation ends for the Derived Dep Area 71,
When the Net Book Value = 0,00 to the Area 70.
How should us proceed to stop the calculations to Depreciation for a
Derived Depreciation Area ?

Area 01 has Usefull Life = 30
Area 70 has Usefull Life = 10

So, Net Book Values will finish first for Dep Area 70 than Dep Area 01 and SAP will continue do the calculations for Dep Area 71 (Derived Dep Area). This is wrong.

Do you have some ideas how can I solve this Issue ?

Thank you very much for your cooperation.

Best Regards,

Alberto Santos
