Pre-"Defined" field does not appear in "Select Field" list

[ Edited ]

The field name I want to use DOES appear in the "Define Field", contact list. However , in the Tools>Design Layouts Contact view, clicking on "Field", then dragging out a field box ... the "Select Field" list ... DOES NOT contain the Field name (that I want to use) that previously showed up in the "Define Field" contact list.

I don't understand why ... if it appears in the Define Field list ... it does not appear in the Select Field list? What do I have to do to get the field name to appear in the Select field list  ... so that I can get the field data to appear in a newly created field box?

The only fields that will appear in the select field dialog in the layout designer ate fields that have not already been placed in the report template.
