If another project or template has a custom field that you would find useful in your project, you can import it to save you the time it would take to create an identical new custom field.
To import a custom field:
  • On the Tools menu, point to Customize, and then click Fields.
  • Click Import Field.
  • Select the project that contains the field you are importing from the Project list.
  • In the Field type area, select Task, Resource, or Project.
  • Select the name of the field you are importing from the Field list.
  • Click OK, and the field's name, value list, formula, and graphical indicators are imported to your project. You can modify these values as appropriate, and then insert the field in your project's views.
Note: Make sure that you are importing the correct Custom Field in the project.
