About Mail Merge & Table Style


I want to use mail merge to generate table row , but I need to change odd & even row background color, I set the table style in word but it’s not working. Does someone know how to do it ??

If I use ReportingEngine to do this, how can I remove emtpy paragraph like mail-merge ?

Because I have a cell need to put two fields, but sometimes only one field has value. I need to remove the empty paragraph to make the cell vertical align middle.


PS: doc.ExpandTableStylesToDirectFormatting(); also not working.
