    I'm having challenges understanding exactly your request anyways I will try to explain briefly how the DropBox integration works.

    Once you integrated your form with Dropbox, the uploaded files to your form along with a pdf file containing the text data fields submitted to your form  will be automaticlly uploaded to your DropBox account. 

    Your form still run with JotForn, a copy of the submitted data/files will also remain at your JotForm account, you can break the dropbox integration anytime and your form will still working as always.

    You can give it a try in order to investigate how it works, it is really simple to integrate your form with Dropbox, you can check this guide

    Yes you can use Paypal within your dropbox form. However, copying one form fields to another form is not quite possible. The best option is to simply integrate dropbox to the other form.

    Simply go to this page to be guided on how to integrate dropbox.

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thank you for using JotForm.

    You can retrieve the complete copy of your submissions and output it as an XLS file. You can all do this from your Submissions Page

    1. Select a form that has submissions and click the Submissions button to access the Submission page of the form


    2.You can download all the submission as an Excel, CSV or PDF format from here


    1. You can also create Excel reports by selecting the form with submissions and click "Report" > "Add New Report"


    2. Choose Excel report


    3. After you have finalized the field selections it will generate a permanent Excel link for you to download or share to your friends. This link will always contain the updated submission database.
