I need to access a custom column of User Information List in a work flow. I've create a new column named MyCol in User Information List and now in a workflow I want to access to in when I lookup Workflow context current user but I can't see my column.

How should I do that?

The custom column should appear in the "Current Item" or the "User Information List" selection in the "Field to Retreive" dialog, not the Workflow context current user.
