Just imported the exported tab separated file and it was imported correctly, with groups, questions, etc, while this was not the case for the edited document. So there must be some problem while editing. I will further investigate and try to use Libreoffice instead of Excel and see what happens.

LibreOffice Calc seems not to be able to save as tab separated txt file, only as CSV, so this didn't work. Or I am doing something wrong.
