Not sure what is related to this cutout/sketch but as soon as I remove this cutout from the base sketch, all the rest of the flanges fails.
Any ideas why this is?
It's because that sketch is what creates Edge-Flange1 and all other features are based on that one. I usually try to do one cut extrude per flange for any cutouts. If the sketch controlling the cutout is in the flange profile and you change that sketch, the edge flange created from that sketch is a new flange in SolidWorks' mind.
Did you check this

This is the best solution. Uncheck both boxes and then delete the feature. Your child features should remain there but with errors that you will need to fix(generally very simple). It will be easier then manually finding every reference that causes your features to get deleted.
As Taylor mentioned, you've embedded details into your flange sketch.
I'd avoid this for future as I'm sure now you understand why.
For the current, edit the sketch and change the opening to construction:
Don't delete as this might into other issues.
This is not the sketch having the problem. It is the one on the opposite side. I did change it to construction and same issue. If I change the circular cutout sketch to construction, the edge flanges does not fail. It only fails on that one rectangular cutout shown in the image in the original post.

Oops...same ramble, correct flange:
The tree lights up red with failed edge flanges and failed sheet metal...dunno why.
Open each red operation and without changing anything, click its green check.
All will be well again.
As you can see in your posted image, You are missing all the edge flanges connected to the flange that has the problem rectangular cutout.

Sorry...too much beer for breakfast, I guess...or not enough.
Hrm, I just looked at the part you provided and it isn't as simple as I thought. This seems to be perhaps a problem inside the program.
Deleting the entitites inside Edge-Flange1>Sketch11 gives errors everywhere.
Selecting the entities and putting them in construction lines gives the same errors.
For some reason, editing every feature afterwards removes the errors and makes the bends appear but perhaps something is missing.
Edit: It seems to be losing the edges to generate a bend in Edge-Flange1 or Edge-Flange4 because if you enter every feature this is what it gives as a final result(missing some of the flanges)
Edit 2 : I doubt we can help you more then this, you might have to contact your VAR. The problem, and I'm guessing here, is that each edges is named accordingly to the line that generated them and that the edge's name was changed upon removing the entities inside the sketch.
Really a wild jab though.
I don't know if you need 2 configuration parts...but if is the case use delete face and create 2 config
Deleting and Patching Faces
This was my original plan: just infill it with a tab (no deletion of anything):
Thanks guys for all the suggestion and I knew, I could do the fill/delete face etc but I am trying to find out why removing this one rectangular slot/hole cause the flanges to fail. I made the other rectangular flanges on the opposite side construction lines and remove the cutout as a test and that did not fail the flanges. Only happens on that one rectangular cut out. I just would like to know why this is happening. Does not make sense to me.
As I said it is an error on SolidWorks side IMO. I'm guessing each edges has internal ID's and by deleting certain lines from a sketch it rebuilds the internal ID's and changes them, which it shouldn't.
Have you contacted your VAR about this? They will be better at trouble shooting it and perhaps explaining the problem also.
I never get a correct answer from our VAR. 99 times out of a 100, I get my question answered here.
I don't think it is an internal ID change that is causing this because as I said, I remove one of the rectangular cutout on the opposite flange and no problem. If the ID change for one flange, then it should change for the other one.
It can depend on a bunch of things such as order things were drawn and what not. I agree with you that VAR's tend to have a harder time to find a solution and generally take longer then this forum but that shouldn't be a reason to totally remove them from the process. When the bug can't be explained, you need to implicate them so that they can then transfer it to SolidWorks or else you get stuck in an infinite loop of bugs as we've seen in the past(and still feel to this day)
