Machining Surface

I'm a just started trying to learn Solidworks CAM for my HAAS TP-2P mill and I'm having a little bit of trouble. 

I have a fairly simple block designed with slots on the top surface. I set the coordinates, mill set up and pick the top of the part. When I Extract Machinable Features, Generate Operation Plan and Generate Tool Path, it wants to try to mill these slots from the side of the block instead of the top. How can I switch the cutting plane from the side to the top?

 

Thank You in advance!
