Use "examine geometry to find the gaps (hint: it is a blend face on the +Y side of the body). Use the "unsew" command to remove this face from the body, then "sew" it back (use the default tolerance). A solid body will result.

 

Optional: use "optimize face" to clean up some of the geometry.

What format was the original geometry? If it was an IGES or STEP both the IGES and STEP translators have the options: "Automatic Sewing of Surfaces" and "Sew Surfaces Automatically" respectively, that will create the solid body for you.
