Change the mergeFields value to an html text

I’m using Aspose Word for Java v11 with ms word 2010 and I want to change the mergeFields value to an html text, my Source code is like this:

builder.insertHtml(" Hello word");

The problem is I want the mergefields still on the same format (font, size,color,style...), so can you help me please ?

Hi Yasser,

Thanks for your inquiry. Please check my reply at following forum link.


Thanks for your inquiry. I think, you can use the following code snippet to be able to merge the formatting that is specified inside Html string with the formatting of MergeField:

Document doc = new Document(@“C:\test\in.docx”);

DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);<o:p></o:p>

builder.MoveToMergeField(“mf”, false, false);<o:p></o:p>

InsertHtmlWithBuilderFormatting(builder, " Hello word");<o:p></o:p>

// Just to remove the mergefield<o:p></o:p>



Please find attached the InsertHtmlWithBuilderFormatting routine with this post.

I hope, this helps.

Best Regards,

Hi Awais,

Thanks for your replay, but i’m programming with Java, can you attach the java code of “insertHtmlWithBuilderFormatting”.

Hi Yasser,

Thanks for your request. I have attached the Java equivalent of InsertHtmlWithBuilderFormatting here with this post. Please try using the following code snippet:
Document doc = new Document(“C:\Temp\mf.docx”);
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

builder.moveToMergeField(“mf”, false, false);

DocumentBuilderHelper helper = new DocumentBuilderHelper(builder);
helper.insertHtmlWithBuilderFormatting(formatted html string);

// Just to remove the mergefield

I hope, this helps.

Best Regards,

Great work!
