We have the Aspose.Words for Java 1.4, latest patch for Word 2007
<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
We are struggling with a weird issue... We have word files stored on our server - that our system uses your tool to "bookmark"/merge data into - then send the file down to the client's pc to save/open.
We are noticing that form fields don’t work with Office 2007.
We can’t figure out what the heck’s going on except one little clue makes me think that the template function is not compatible with the new Office 2007 forms elements, and maybe some other aspects of the new file types. We tried adding a new checkbox and saw that there was a “Legacy Forms” group of form controls available in Word, and then a separate group of the kind that are used in Marie’s document, called “ActiveX Controls”. The ActiveX controls look and feel more like VisualBasic-type elements.
We added a “legacy” checkbox and protected the document for forms, uploaded the template to Totality and generated a document from it. The ActiveX checkboxes are all dead, but the “legacy” one worked like a charm – can check it and uncheck it. Pretty weird.
We tried adding a new embedded spreadsheet and got the same behavior as the client’s – just can’t open it.
But the bookmarks seemed to work fine.
Any suggestions ????
