Retaining Walls Not Working With Imported Elevation Data?

Hi, 

 

I'm new to this. I'm using Chief Architect Premier X7. I have imported perimeter and elevation data from a DWG file. It looks correct in the Perspective Full Overview, however when I try to draw a retaining wall all I get is something that looks like a stripe of concrete on the ground (attached) - the terrain does not get broken.  In a new plan with perimeter and elevation lines created manually retaining walls work as expected. 

 

What am I missing?

Thanks Scott! I'm getting much better results with the elevation region, but I still must be doing something wrong. Here is the screenshot of mine (lower) vs Mark's (upper):

Mine has these rugged terrain irregularities, while Mark's is smooth.

Move your elevation region UNDER THE WALL BY ABOUT 3 inches, that should take care of irregularities.
