Please show your art. Most importantla: the screenshot has to contain the layers panel.

Libby,

 

Select both the object to be clipped and the single/compound path that clips it, then apply the mask (you can use Ctrl/Cmd+7).

 

It seems that you have only selected either; if one of them is locked, unlock it.

 

You can look in the Layers palette with the Layer expanded to make sure what you are doing if you are uncertain.
