Splitting Solid with surface problems



I'm relatively new to this kind of modelling, and am having some issues trying to split a body with a lofted surface I've made. 

I'm trying to make a seat as depression, and have lofted a surface to create what I'm after. (see attached screenshot) However when I come to split the body of the seat with the lofted surface I get an error saying "Compute failed: no intersection between target and split tool"


I'm not wholly sure what I'm missing here, I've tried looking on line but haven't found anything too helpful. I'm aware I could be doing something stupid, and maybe approaching it in the wrong way, but I don't really know what to search for so am a bit stumped at the moment! 


any help would be greatly appreciated. I've attached a link to the model. https://a360.co/3G713rO 


Thanks in advance

Hi @simonwjsawyer 

The surface may be a little shorter than the solid you're trying to split. Have you tried to extend the surface so it goes beyond the solid that you're trying to split? The tool can be found on the Surface menu > Modify panel > Extend.


Hope this helps.
