due to some changes i had taken the access key of function module of a smart form and did the changes in function module,now the problem is every time when i activate the smart form my code is deleting,because i think when we activate the smartform it is deleting the FM and creating New Fm with same name,when i did the changes and activate the FM,it is not allowing to save me in my packageand i have to save in local object for the testing purpose

You shouldn't be making changes in the generated FM.

This FM is created by SAP from the Smart Form itself.

You should make the changes in the Smart Form and activate it. This will generate the FM for you.

There is no need to modify the generated FM, because you can write ABAP code into your smartform. And with this code, you can handle everything, what is not in the smartform already. Well at least I did it already...

What was your need, because of you had to modify the FM?
