I have a flow designer and it's based off of a custom object with has an account associated to it. However, I cannot figure out how to select the account through the drop down list.

Object: Account Field: is all of the picklist fields on the object.

Is there a way I can pick an account within this flow?

On my create record step, I simply assigned the var's
