Problem with creating boundary surface between splines

Hello,

 

I am using Solidworks to model surfaces, which I create from splines. I have been successful so far with creating a boundary surface between 5 splines. Since increasing the resolution to use 10 splines I am getting an error "the feature could not be created as it would produce self intersecting geometry". As the splines themselves are not self intersecting I can only assume they are too complex for Solidworks - or I am doing something wrong!

 

Any ideas would be appreciated. I can get around this problem by creating two adjoining boundary surfaces, however its not ideal as the surface is not continuous at the join. I've attached the file for reference.

 

Best Regards,

 

Jen
