Q I want to import Enterprise Flag fields from Microsoft Project server.  Is this possible?
A Yes, with a little tweaking on the Microsoft Project side. 
 
   
  In Microsoft Project
1 Add a new Flag field to your schedule (one of the Flag1-20 fields)
2 Right-click in the column heading area for the Flag field.
3 Choose Customize Fields...

4
Click the Formula button.

 

5
Click the Field button to insert a new field.

6 Save your Microsoft Project File.
7 Import your Microsoft Project File into Milestones using the wizard (as usual).  This time, pick the new Flag field you just set up (Flag 2 in this example).  It will pick up the contents of your Enterprise flag field from Project Server.
   
  Note: This technique can also be used to import Enterprise number fields, text fields and cost fields.
