Error while activating smartform after uploading xml file


I downloaded the xml file of a smartform from production environment and uploaded it in the development environment. The smartform got uploaded but on trying to activate it I am getting the below error.

"Internal error (illegal structure of data storage)"

Please provide some solution.

Hi Sangram,

Please check for GRAPHIC in your smartform pages FIRST and NEXT.

If you find any graphic window with same names, then the smartform will not get activated.

You can try this yourself in a test smart form.

Create a graphic with some BMAP image on FIRST page with name "LOGO"

Next try to create a Graphic under NEXT page with same nameĀ  "LOGO"

The smartform tool will immediately throw an error, "same names not allowed"

Now you try to right click on FIRST page "LOGO" and copy.

Next right click on NEXT PAGE , paste.

The smartform tool will allow this.

The smartform will activate successfully.

Whenever you upload a XML to create smartform , the error is bound to occur if same names for graphic window is encountered.
