Compatibility of Aspose.Total for SharePoint with SharePoint Online - Edit Documents using C# .NET APIs

Hi, I want to understand the compatibility of Aspose with SharePoint online, are requirement is to work on migrated documents, will Aspose for SharePoint be able to edit the documents or do I need to explore Aspose for .NET.

A major requirement is to modify the links within the documents.

@anshumanbansal,

For example, talking about Aspose.Words for SharePoint, it has two main features: document conversion and report generation. It integrates with SharePoint and provides a user interface for these features. You can use these features programmatically as well. But, Aspose.Words for SharePoint does not expose the “whole document object module” like Aspose.Words for .NET does. For example, the MailMerge feature is available in Aspose.Words for .NET; but you cannot use the MailMerge class via Aspose.Words for SharePoint. Similarly, you cannot modify the links in Word documents by using Aspose.Words for SharePoint but editing hyperlinks in Word document is possible when using Aspose.Words for .NET API.

So, Aspose.Total for SharePoint has fewer features and if you want to take full advantage of the whole Aspose.Total APIs then we would recommend you please go for ‘Aspose.Total for.NET’ APIs. And of-course, you can integrate Aspose.Total for .NET with SharePoint environment. For this, we would suggest you please go through the following blog post and video tutorial:
