Default channel box / layer control question

Hello, can someone please help me. I don't understand why my channel control will not let me edit the object when I click on the shape name. It simply lets me alter the name itself. It will not let me edit faces of polygons or spans of nurbs. Here is a pic of what Iím talking about. If you know why this is happening please email me at grevend03@yahoo.com. Thank you

Make sure your history is on.

It's the button in the status line that looks like a little scroll.

Recreate the object now and the new one will have it's history on. Turning on history does not restore history for objects that were created when it was off. It will "record" any changes made from this point forward though.
