Hi

Thanks for your request. Yes, of course, please see the following simple code:

Document doc = new Document("C:\\Temp\\in.doc");

// Create DocumentBuilder

DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

builder.MoveToDocumentStart();

// At the beggining of the document we insert TOC filed, whick will be updated before saving document.

builder.InsertTableOfContents("\\o \"1-3\" \\h \\z \\u");

doc.UpdateFields();

doc.Save("C:\\Temp\\out.doc");

Best regards,

In the Document we have Multiple Tables and we need to get table names in TOC as mentioned below.

builder.InsertTableOfContents("\\f")

Kindly let me know in case there is any way to set the Table Name/Text for a Table at Run Time using Aspose.

or

Please let me know if we can manually Create Table of Contents using Aspose.

Hi

Thanks for your request. Unfortunately, it is not quite clear for me what you would like to achieve. Could you please attach you input and expected output documents here for testing? I will check them and provide you more information.

Hi

Thanks for your request. Actually, In MS Word table cannot have a name. In Ms Word you can specify a caption of a table. And then use these captions to built a TOT (Table of Tables). Is this what you would like to achieve?

The code provided by Andrey builds a TOC in the document by Headings. If you need to build a TOT, you should use code like the following:

builder.InsertTableOfContents("\\h \\z \\c \"Table\"");

Where “Table” is a name of SEQ field used for table’s caption.

It would be great if you attach a sample document where you need to insert TOC and the expected output.

Could you kindly let me know if we could dynamically set the Caption of a table using aspose, so that we can use that in populating Table of Contents.

Thanks

Hi Phani,

Thanks for your request. Sure, you can. But maybe in your case it is not necessary. Please attach your sample document where you need to build a TOC. We will check it and provide you sample code that does what you need. Waiting for your inputs.

Please find attached the Document. Where we need to populate Table of Contents dynamically by reading the Table Caption.

Hi

Thank you for additional information. Since, you are building a document dynamically using Mail Merge, you can just put a Heading paragraph at the top of you regions and insert a mergefield into this paragraph where you will insert a table title. In this case you will be able to build a TOC using these heading paragraphs. I created a simple template and code example for you:

// Create a dummy datasource.

DataTable data = new DataTable("Data");

data.Columns.Add("Title");

for(int i=0; i<10; i++)

data.Rows.Add(new object[] {string.Format("Title_{0}", i)});

// Open template and execute mail merge.

Document doc = new Document(@"Test001\in.doc");

doc.MailMerge.ExecuteWithRegions(data);

// Update fields in the document to update TOC.

doc.UpdateFields();

doc.Save(@"Test001\out.doc");

Hope this helps.
