Trados Studio 2011 Fails to insert from TM, even for TU's with 100% matches [SOLVED]

This is a new problem, after many years of using Trados. I am working on a familiar project, and I know the TU's already exist in my TM, many of them with 100% matches. But the Memory/Concordance window tells me "no matches found", and no text gets inserted in the target portion of my work. When I select the entire source TU and use the Concordance search (F3), I do find the TU and the translation, which still does not insert authomatically. I have to manually copy and paste the target translation from the Memory/Concordance window. This of course takes a huge amount of time.
I am using Studio 2011 SP2R, with Windows 7 Home, which is what I have used previously without problem. I have not updated my system or changed anything since the last project. The project settings are all correct. I am drawing from 2 memories, one being my own, which accumulates years of work (including similar projects), and the other directly related to this particular project, and provided by the client. I tested by disabling each of these two memories separately, but nothing fixed the problem. The files are all Word files (.doc). The source language is English. The target is Arabic.

Edit: Solved. Kept searching ProZ and found this:
Thank you Nora Diaz for a solution that worked.
