Surface will not sweep along a path

I need to sweep a surface along a path (file attached) however when I attempt this is simply get the response 'unable to sweep 1 selected object'. I have used this path before an a similar surface and so know there is no problem with the path. I simply do not understand what the issue is. I have also tried lofting as well as extruding along the path and this does not work either. Please help!

to be more exact about the corrupt path..the right halve is OK...double line is in the left I deleted the left half...mirrored the right one..made a polyline worked..
Do you know the command "overkill"?? just type it in and it will delete duplicated (double) lines......not much engineers know of this command, give it a'll love it...

Better to loose Acad all
together and get a version of Solidworks.
It is like comparing swines (acad) with pearls (SW or Inventor for that matter).....

Simple solution....the path is NOT one line..I have checked the sketch and it are actually 2 lines...not redraw the path as one line (make a polyline) and it will work

Hans thank you so much for your swift response. However I do apologise, the line was originally one continuous line but I halved it in my attempts to find a solution. I attached the wrong drawing. So I do apologise, but even using the drawing you attached is will not sweep along this line and I don't know why. Would you mind trying yourself?

path must be in polyline or the created lines must be in same plane...
