Abstract: Let $ M'$ be a complex manifold and let $ M \subset \subset M'$ be an open pseudo-convex submanifold with a smooth boundary which can be exhausted by strongly pseudo-convex submanifolds. The main result of this paper is the following: Given a $ \overline \partial $-closed $ (p,q)$-form $ \alpha $, which is $ {C^\infty }$ on $ \overline M $ and which is cohomologous to zero on $ M$ then for every $ m$ there exists a $ (p,q - 1)$-form $ {u_{(m)}}$ which is $ {C^m}$ on $ \overline M $ such that $ \overline \partial {u_{(m)}} = \alpha $.
