Sharepoint Designer, Define Workflow Lookup. Pull value from a list.

mwalters1984
My problem:

I'm designing a workflow that runs in a form library. I want to lookup a value from an item in a custom list.

I want to calculate a date/time using "Add [number] [minutes] to [date] (Output to [Variable])"

I want [date] to be pulled from a value in my custom list. So I click on date, opening the define workflow lookup dialog.

Select my list as the source, but I am not able to see any of my custom columns in the "Field" list. I can only see "Created" and "Modified."

I have 3 columns, defined as numbers, which only accept a single value. I also have one column, defined as a "single line of text." With a description of the item.

I watched the Office online video "Design a document review workflow" and the guy does it just fine with no problems. Though he doesn't described how he created the columns in his custom list. Google only returned that if a column is allowed to have multiple values it won't show it (which isn't the case with mine). It's driving me nuts!

Any help would be greatly appreciated before I go pour hot coffee on the sharepoint server :)

Thanks!
