Aspose.Words.Document.Range.UpdateFields()

Hello,

How can I update the formula fields automatically?

This is my code snippet,

Aspose.Words.Document wordDocument = new Aspose.Words.Document("c:\\temp\\Testing formulas.doc");

wordDocument.Range.Replace("", "20", false, false);

wordDocument.Range.UpdateFields();

wordDocument.Save("c:\\temp\\Testing formulas - merged.doc");

Attached are the input file (Testing Formulas.doc) and the output file (Testing formulas - merged.doc).

Is there something I’m doing wrong? Do you have a feature like Document.Fields.Update from MS Word Automation? I thought that Aspose.Words.Document.Range.UpdateFields() will do it…

Thanks,
Juno

UpdateFields at the moment updates the results of DOCPROPERTY and DOCVARIABLE fields only. To calculate fields in Word document you need to open it in MS Word and press ALT-F9.

Hello,

Our application is running on a server environment and it is intended to deliver word documents with the formula fields updated without user intervention. Do you have any plans to support the automatic calculation of fields any time soon?

Thanks,

Juno

Yes, we plan adding automatic calculation of fields but there is no time frame yet.

This feature is critical for our application. Can you give us an estimate date for the implementation?

Thanks,

Juno

6 months is our best estimate at the moment.

This is very critical to our application as well. Is there any update on this feature. Could you please provide an estimated date for completion?

Thanks,
Mark Whitbeck

Hi

Thanks for your request. Unfortunately, this problem is unresolved yet. Also see FAQ.

Best regards.

Is there any update on this feature? We are currently in need of this feature to handle one of the business requirements.


Thanks

Same here - not sure if it's the same issue, but I've got a document with the Filename field in it - when I do a merge, this value stays as the template name - not the merged file name.

Will post a new topic about my issue - but would be cool if UpdateFields did maybe the real basics?

Hi

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Thanks for your inquiry. The current version of Aspose.Words is still able to update only DOCPROPERTY and DOCVARIABLE fields. However, we are working on field evaluation engine at the moment. I will notify you as soon as there is progress regarding this issue.

Best regards.

The issues you have found earlier (filed as 126) have been fixed in this update.

Hi,

We are getting an error "!Undefined Bookmark" when we are using UpdateFields() method. If the formula cell contains the $ sign then it is throwing this error in the output document otherwise it is working fine.

Please see the below code which we are using to replace the smart tags.

Aspose.Words.Document doc = new Document("c:\\in.doc");
doc.Range.Replace("<>", "Address Line 1", false, false);
doc.Range.Replace("<>", "City", false, false);
doc.Range.Replace("<>","state",false,false);
doc.Range.Replace("<>","12345",false,false);
doc.Range.Replace("<>", "10000", false, false);
doc.Range.UpdateFields();
doc.Save("c:\\out.doc", Aspose.Words.SaveFormat.Doc);

Please find the attached zip file contains sample document and generated output document. Please look in to the issue let me know the fix.

Thanks,
