If you installed iWork apps from a DVD, you need to use that DVD and reinstall the apps. Then update iWork to current using Software Update. There are other components from the DVD that need to be installed. I tried the same thing once and realized I had to reinstall and not restore from a TM backup.
If you purchased the iWork apps from the App Store, you should be able to redownload and install these again. If the download button is greyed out, make sure your TM back up and/or clone drive is unmounted. Otherwise, the App Store will see this and think the apps are already installed.

Time Machine probably sees the reinstall as a new machine. See this for information about how to access your backups:
That said, you really ought to just reinstall your iWork apps from the original media, or re-download from the App Store if that's where you got them.

Thanks for the input. I believe I installed the previous version of iWork when I got my laptop four years ago, then upgraded online to '09. I will see if I still have the old install disks.

Thanks for the link. I will give this a try tomorrow or later this weekend. I will let you know what I find.
