"Appdending one document to another document throws ""insufficient data written"" error."

We are receiving an error trying to append a .doc file onto another document. These same files work when using PDF.

The URI is:
http://api.saaspose.com/v1.0/words/Quotation Details.296f4470-2c63-409b-9f55-408b9b5166f5.cc9ec59e-289b-4ab6-ae9d-771b1f44f284.doc/appendDocument

The other document being appended is:
Quotation Summary.9f001034-2f1f-4a20-b0ae-28b99b704915.3cabdcb4-9b8a-4a0b-b41a-96cf1a796bb1.doc

We are using SDK com.saaspose.words.Document, append method.

Error:
21:25:24,646 ERROR [Utils] Error processing command

Please advice.

Hi Gloria,

I was unable to reproduce exactly the same error but there was a bug in AppendDocument method and it was not merging the documents from root folder. This method has now been updated; please get the latest version of com.saaspose.words.Document from https://github.com/saaspose/Saaspose.SDK-for-Java/blob/master/Saaspose.SDK/src/com/saaspose/words/Document.java and the try again.

I have used the following code to merge documents:

1. For root folder

SaasposeApp.setAppKey("89");
SaasposeApp.setAppSID("77");
// specify product URI
Product.setBaseProductUri("http://api.saaspose.com/v1.0");

try {
String mainDocument = "C:\\MainDocument.doc";
String appendDocument1 = "C:\\AppendDocument1.doc";
String appendDocument2 = "C:\\AppendDocument2.doc";

com.saaspose.storage.Folder folder = new Folder();
folder.UploadFile(mainDocument, "");
folder.UploadFile(appendDocument1, "");
folder.UploadFile(appendDocument2, "");

String[] appendDocs = {"AppendDocument1.doc","AppendDocument2.doc"};
String[] importFormatModes = { "KeepSourceFormatting", "UseDestinationStyles" };
com.saaspose.words.Document document =new com.saaspose.words.Document(new File(mainDocument).getName());
document.AppendDocument(appendDocs, importFormatModes, "");

InputStream responseStream = folder.GetFile(new File(mainDocument).getName());
Folder.SaveStreamToFile("C:\\MergedDocument.doc", responseStream);
responseStream.close();

System.out.println("Done");
} catch (Exception e) {
// TODO Auto-generated catch block
e.printStackTrace();
}

2. If documents are not at the root folder (or in specific folders/sub-folders)

SaasposeApp.setAppKey("89");
SaasposeApp.setAppSID("77");
// specify product URI
Product.setBaseProductUri("http://api.saaspose.com/v1.0");

try {
String mainDocument = "C:\\MainDocument.doc";
String appendDocument1 = "C:\\AppendDocument1.doc";
String appendDocument2 = "C:\\AppendDocument2.doc";

com.saaspose.storage.Folder folder = new Folder();
folder.UploadFile(mainDocument, "Folder1");
folder.UploadFile(appendDocument1, "Folder1");
folder.UploadFile(appendDocument2, "Folder1");

String[] appendDocs = {"AppendDocument1.doc","AppendDocument2.doc"};
String[] importFormatModes = { "KeepSourceFormatting", "UseDestinationStyles" };
com.saaspose.words.Document document =new com.saaspose.words.Document(new File(mainDocument).getName());
document.AppendDocument(appendDocs, importFormatModes, "Folder1");

InputStream responseStream = folder.GetFile("Folder1/" + new File(mainDocument).getName());
Folder.SaveStreamToFile("C:\\MergedDocument.doc", responseStream);
responseStream.close();

System.out.println("Done");
} catch (Exception e) {
// TODO Auto-generated catch block
e.printStackTrace();
}

Please try this code and let us know if it works for you; in case it does not work, please share your complete code and sample documents for further analysis.

Same results. Please try to recreate with attached files.

Hi Gloria,

Sorry, I was still unable to reproduce the issue. I get the attached output and following is my complete code:

import java.io.File;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.InputStream;

import com.saaspose.common.Product;
import com.saaspose.common.SaasposeApp;
import com.saaspose.storage.Folder;

public class MergeDocuments {
public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
SaasposeApp.setAppKey("89**********");
SaasposeApp.setAppSID("77************");
// specify product URI
Product.setBaseProductUri("http://api.saaspose.com/v1.0");

try {
String mainDocument = "d:\\CoverPage.doc";
String appendDocument = "d:\\OpportunitySummary.doc";

com.saaspose.storage.Folder folder = new Folder();
folder.UploadFile(mainDocument, "");
folder.UploadFile(appendDocument, "");

String[] appendDocs = {"OpportunitySummary.doc"};
String[] importFormatModes = { "KeepSourceFormatting" };
com.saaspose.words.Document document =new com.saaspose.words.Document(new File(mainDocument).getName());
document.AppendDocument(appendDocs, importFormatModes, "");

InputStream responseStream = folder.GetFile(new File(mainDocument).getName());
Folder.SaveStreamToFile("d:\\MergedDocument.doc", responseStream);
responseStream.close();

System.out.println("Done");
} catch (Exception e) {
// TODO Auto-generated catch block
e.printStackTrace();
}

}
}

Can you please share your App SID and App Key with complete code for further analysis?
