What are the reasons that the entire menu for clips might be grayed out? I have a video and audio clip marked for syncing, but all the options for the clip pulldown menu are grayed out. Obviously some condition is not met, but I am too green with this software to have a clue. Ideas? Thanks!

They're highlighted? The timeline is active?

yes, to both. Actually don't know how the timeline would be inactive, but yes, as far as I can tell.

What he means is, is the timeline panel "active", as in is it outlined in blue. If you try to export Media but the timeline or the program monitor is not highlighted, that option will be grayed out.

Well, both clips are highlighted on the timeline. Is there a way for the timeline NOT to be highlighted if both clips are?

Yes. Although the probability is unlikely, the possibility exists. See attached photo. I have an adjustment layer, one of many video clips, and the audio track selected, but the blue outline is on my Program panel. However, if I right click on the clips I don't get a grayed out menu, which is your actual problem, so I'm stumped, but then again, I'm definitely not the final source of wisdom. I'm sure someone will figure it out for you.

Finally made this work! Today, when I dotted all the i's and crossed the T's, it all worked!

I've had that happen. For some reason, this feature seems to be built for MULTICAM modes, not just multi audio. You have to make sure each audio track has a corresponding video track, even if it doesn't have any video on it. I've had the menu grey out with 6 cams (with their own audio) and an audio track of my own mix, when the last audio track didn't have a video track number to connect with. Once I added the video track, saved, closed, and reopened, everything worked. It's looking for a timecode to use, which is usually defined by a video track, not audio, at least in premiere.
