Import/merge forms
------------------
The form `copyFormFromExt` copies a form from table `ExtForm / ExtFormElement` to `Form / FormElement`. The import/merge
form
* Q: A variable {{<var>}} is shown as empty string, but there should be a value.
* offers a drop down list with all forms of `ExtForm`,
* an input element for the new form name,
* create new Form.id
* copied FormElements get the new Form.id.
* the copied form will be opened in the FormEditor.
Installation:
* Play the file *<ext_dir>/qfq/sql/copyFormFromExt.sql*.
* Insert a link/button 'Copy form from ExtForm' to open the import/merge form. A good place is the list of all forms
(see `form-editor`_). E.g.: ::
10.head = {{'b|p:id={{pageAlias:T}}&form=copyFormFromExt|t:Copy form from ExtForm' AS _link }} ...
* A: The sanitize rule is violeted and therefore the value has been removed. Set {{<var>:<store>:all}} as a test.
Only STORE_CLIENT and STORE_FORM will be sanitized.

Injecting the data is done in the same way in both modes . The only difference is by specifying a xlsx file which will
be used as an template.
If the export file has to be customized (colors, pictures, headlines, ...), the TEMPLATE mode is the preferred option.
