I am trying to make the attached sheet metal part but I am unable to get a correct flat pattern of the extruded cut feature. Can anyone suggest a way to do it?

Can you please suggest a way to do it. I am out of ideas
Opened up the file in SW2013 and Flat pattern worked fine. Since the part is from an older version I'm attaching a snap shot for your reference.
BTW are you getting any errors??
I am getting the same flat pattern in 2012.
But I think he is referring to the flat pattern after the extrude-cut. (shape after the extrude-cut is not reflected in flat pattern)
I am not very expert in sheet metal, so I cannot comment on this.
Deepak your part not correct either it unfolded fine but didn't include the angle cut
it should look someting like this, sw2014 unfolded without including the cut also.
Thanks John/Mark, now I see what he meant.
Thanxs a lot for all your answers. I will follow Kelvin's advice and vote for this bug to be fixed. I will add the angled cut on the flat pattern manually.
Is this bug fixed already, I am having problems with a similar part, the part I have has some holes in it too and at drawing level I am unable to place dimensions on the hole or curve of the flat pattern.
