Defining a variable in Aspose?

Hello,
I saw on the documentation that the syntax for defining a variable is:
<<var [s = “Hello!”]>><<[s]>>
I tried the same code on a completely blank document but the system returns error is there something I’m missing?
Thanks you

@TizianoSacchi,

Which Aspose API you are using, could you please share your sample code that you are using? We will check it and assist you soon.

The code I used is only this:
<<var [s = “Hello!”]>><<[s]>>
We are using Aspose version: 16.12
Thanks you,

@TizianoSacchi,

Are you using Aspose.Words 16.12 or Aspose.PDF 16.12 API? Also, share the documentation link from which you are trying the sample code.

Hello Thanks you for your support.
I am using Aspose.Words 16.12 the code I’m trying comes from here: https://docs.aspose.com/words/java/using-variables/

@TizianoSacchi Thank you for additional information. I have checked and this works fine with the latest 22.1 version of Aspose.Words for Java. I have used the following template syntax:

<<var [s = “Hello!”]>><<[s]>>

And the following simple code:

Document doc = new Document("C:\\Temp\\in.docx");
ReportingEngine engine = new ReportingEngine();
engine.buildReport(doc, new Object());
doc.save("C:\\Temp\\out.docx");

Here is my input and output documents in.docx (11.9 KB)
