Custom subject line in Sharepoint email message using SP Designer 2007.

Is there a way to display a custom subject line on an email from SharePoint that displays info from 2 fields? We have a Team Member Service form which sends custom emails to different groups. All will have the same Subject line but it should say something like:
Team Member Service Form: New Service - John Smith

I thought I could combine the 2 fields into one via a Calculation but that doesn't work for these particular fields. I need to display the "Service Type" field which has choices of "New", "Delete", "Transfer" and the "Name of Employee" field which a single line, free-form text field.

Does anyone have any idea on how to accomplish this? I also need the Subject to include the words "Team Member Service Form" preceding the Service Type or Name of Employee. It's currently not doing that. I've attached screenshots of what i have currently.

When you say Calculation, do you mean a Calculated column, or a calculated variable in your workflow.  You should be able to join text variables into another variable in SP Designer 2007, and then use that variable in your subject line.  Just remember to enclose variables in brackets, and try not to use spaces in your variable names.
