During my evalution of the Aspose.Word component I ran into 2 issues. This dll could be a wonderfull solution if I can get past these issues.
The first issue involves “Field Code: IF” statements that are in a template document. These statements do not render correctly on the Aspose.Word merged document. Upon toggling these field codes, in the new doc, it shows the merge data inside of the formula but does not process it.
(We have about 1100 of these Word mailmerge templates in existence, and most of them have at least one merge formula field, so eliminating these statements is not practical)
The second issue is that preceding some Numbering and Bullets there are some random characters that are being inserted into the document.
I have attached a sample template document. Page 2 has three of these “IF statement” merge fields that fail to render.
Thanks for any help, outside of these issues this product is a great fit for our needs.
