Help bending sheet metal.

I am having difficulty just bending this part at the line drawn only. When I attempt to bend where the line is drawn Solid Edge want to bend accross the entire plane? I just want to bend where I drew the line. How can this be accomplished?

 

Thanks

While in the bend command, before you click Finish, go into the Bend Options on the left of the ribbon bar. (Shown circled in red below)

In the Bend Options Dialog, uncheck "Extend Profile" (shown circled in red below) and click OK.

Now, your bend will only be to the line extent.
