A VERY Basic Question

New to SolidWorks (relatively). I'm using 2007. Trying to create a section view in a drawing. Several elements in the model are not on c/l. When I try to create the section view, I get the message that I'm only able to create a partial section. The section line is completely thru the view bounding box on the parent view. I've created sections like this before, but never had this problem. Regardless of whether I'm cutting thru all parts, I should still be able to create a useable section, right? After that I can use the section scope box to include or exclude individual components, right?

Any ideas?
