"Created By" not showing in Dynamic Content

Greetings. I am trying to send an email and would like to send a copy to the person who created the original item. Unfortunately, the "created by" field is not showing up in the Dynamic Content list. In fact, the list only contains about 14 items, none of which are items that are automatically associated with a list, like Created By. Any thoughts why I don't have access to these fields? Thank you.

Here is a screen shot. As you can see, when I start typing "c" to try and filter out all fields that start with "c", Create By is not in the list. Flow Error.JPG

That did the trick!!!  It was already set to "All Items", but switching it to "Use all columns" pulled in the extra fields to the list.

Thank you!!!
