SharePoint Workflow Lookup Problems

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I am trying to set up a custom workflow through SharePoint Designer 2007 in which an individual person is sent an email when assigned as an event owner.  The list is composed of about 20 fields (columns within the database if I understand it correctly).  One of those columns is designated "Event Owner."  However, when I setup the workflow, only about nine of those columns appear for selection (of course - 'Event Owner' is not one of them).

I have compared the columns that do appear to the columns that do not appear and I cannot seem to find a difference between them.  What might possibly be keeping SharePoint Designer from seeing the other 11'ish columns?
