What version of Maya are you using? Also, are there any errors in the script editor?

to convert polygons to subdiviions you must first have a good modeled surface or object. which means all of its faces should be in quads. then simply modify > convert > poly to subdivision > the max base mesh faces should be a high enough number to turn your polygon into a subdi, and the maximum edges per vetex should be set high enough so that it can make enough vertex to support your model.
