Loft command giving me problems

I am trying to use the loft command to go from Sketch 3 to Sketch 4, but with the output on solid, it gives me this error. "The attempted operation had problems trimming and discarding faces. Try with different inputs."


I am using Inventor 2012 professional. The loft commands I am using are "Join", "Rails" "Solid Output"

It won't work because you multiple loops in each sketch.  If you edit the sketches and changes the inner loops to construction lines, it will work.  You'll get a solid loft and then you can use the shell command to hollow out the inside and maintain your .100" wall thickness.
