Question Regarding Smriti -as related to discussion on pramAnas

Dear Bhagavatas,

I would very grateful if someone can answer the following question.  

In studying the section dealing with the dismissal of additional PramanAs
(accepted by other schools) in Sri. Chari's book (fundamentals of
Vis'istAdvaita), the following question came to mind:

Re: Smriti

The basis for Smriti is samskara(residual impression of experience.)

Given this, one can ask, can samskara be formed without experience in
current janma  (experience having taken place in some previous janma)?

ramanuja dasan,
Venkat
