Click the layer. On the time line. Right click and hit select as audio source.

On the time line. Where all the stuff you've put is. Like purple grading objects or blue videos objects.

Does that picture explain? The purple/pink thing is a layer. Right click it.
Hope this helps

If nothing came up, then you are clicking in the wrong place. The entire lower portion of the interface is the timeline. Each object on the timeline is a layer. Each layer has a name at the far left side of the timeline. Move your mouse to point the cursor at the name of the layer you want, and click the right mouse button. If you are on a Mac, then you will have to control-click, as the right mouse button doesn't work.

Sure thing. This is a good example of why including some basic info (like what platform you are on) is a good idea when asking for support. Glad you got it sorted though.
