Converting to sheet metal

Hi everyone,


Haven't really worked with sheet metal so I'm not really sure what I'm doing wrong. I'm trying to convert this imported part to sheet metal. I'm doing Insert>sheet Metal>Convert to sheet metal.


I then click on the face with the slot and the hole on it as the fixed entity. I then click on connect all bends then hit the check mark for OK.


It then gives me an error that says "The fixed face is inappropriate. Please choose a face which is either the top or bottom face of the sheet metal."


I've tried different faces but I can't seem to get it to work.


I've attached the files below. They are basically the same, except one has a piece cut off.


Any help is greatly appreciated!
