Disappearing MailMerge fields?

Hello all,

Another question during our eval of your component, i know your doco says that during a merge it purges the merge fields as it replaces the data - is there a way to not do this? It is important for our users to have the ability to toggle to see the fields that are represented in the output.

Thanks.

Addition to my note above,

I have a word doc with two merge fields and I call the MailMerge.Execute(string[], object[]) and save the output as another file.

Whether I look at the master or the new final generated doc I cannot toggle to see the fields.

Thanks.

To toggle merge fields fisible you need to press ALT-F9 when viewing the document in MS Word.

After completing MailMerge execution all merge fields that were filled with data are replaced with the actual data. That is how it is done in MS Word and Aspose.Words is doing it in exactly the same manner.
