un-group the object(s).  Either go Build>Ungroup or press 'u' a few times.  It seems you either have a group of objects, or you accidentally grouped your one object with itself (which is possible, you may have accidentally pressed 'g' with the object selected.)

Oh, and don't "subdivide faces..." use "Build>convert to subdivided" instead.
