Delete fields in .DOC

Hi everyone!

I have problems with fields when i copy MSWORD documents (.DOC) because i lost the values.

FieldStart -- {CODE} -- FieldSeparator -- {VALUE} -- FieldEnd

On destination file, in fields appears "ERROR!...."

A possible solution could be check all fields (with Aspose.Words), delete and replace them for the values. What do you think? How can i do this? (better with an c# example, please).

I know how check and found nodes, but i don´t know how delete fields. An c# example, please.

Best regards,

Thanks for your request. It is very easy to fill Word document with data using MailMerge, please see the following link to learn more


During mail merge, merge fields are replaced with values. Also, if you need just remove unmerged merge fields from your document, you can try using MailMerge.DeleteFields method:


I think the code which I provided in another thread will help you to remove fields:

Hope this helps.
