I have two lists:

List1:

Contractor (people picker)
number (text)
dept (text)

List2:

PO Number (text)
Contractor (lookup) -------> This lookup will let me pick ID, Created, number, dept, etc... but there is NO choice for Contractor. I tried creating a second people picker column in list1... and it omits them both.

Help please!

Hi,
unfortunately not all column types are available to be used as lookup fields.
An overview can be found here:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint-help/create-list-relationships-by-using-unique-and-lookup-columns-HA102771358.aspx

The following table summarizes what column types can and cannot be used to create lookup columns.
Supported Column Types:
Single line of text, Multiple lines of text, Choice, Number, Date and Time, Yes/No

Unsupported Column Types:
Currency, Lookup, Person or Group, Calculated, Hyperlink or Picture, Custom Columns
