Maya texturing prob/automatic mapping

Hi! A strange texturing problem is stopping my workflow: I want to texture a 90 degree bended polygon-tube with a file. I applied automatic mapping at step 6 and have cut the tube before and after the bend and lined up the pieces parallel. When I try to assign the texture to the object I get the error- message: "error while parsing arguments". And I don`t know whats wrong...

Who has an idea, what I could try alternatively? (I can not take an easy material beause the tube is a very important part of the scene). THX for every hint!

Check your normals. There are several options with normals that you can try. The other item with polys that always gets a bit crazy is try the cleanup geometry option under the polygons menu.

Last....always try to delete the history of an object. I love how that will make stuff work after fooling with it for an hour.
