Trying to Cut Holes In Solid - Is This A Software Glitch?

I have created a grid of bodies that I want to use to cut a hole in a larger object.   I'm using a Combine modify tool, and I've got all my holes selected as you can see below, but as soon as I hit OK nothing happens. 

 

I'm stumped, I've tried this a dozen different ways and I'm either having a total brain fart of the software is glitching.

 

Would love to know if it's me or Fusion, thanks!

Hide the kept Tools - in the component visibility.

 

Might help....

This is a cool solution. The only issue is the grid pattern of holes isn't as tight as I need. (It doesn't alternate half a diameter along the x-axis as I have done.) But I like the tidiness of this approach nonetheless.

I've never used the Patch tool before. What does it do/mean exactly?

change the pattern direction

The extrusion with the option "Cut" is limited by the object Surface Body ("To Object") .
In the following pattern, only those features are duplicated that are completely within the area of this surface.

This is quite brilliant, thank you for walking me through that. A definite enhancement to my skillset.

Then please also mark it as an accepted solution.
This will make it easier for future readers to find their way around.

Done. Didn't realize there could be two accepted solutions, thanks for the heads up.
