Find and Replace Whole

Hi ALL :

I am working with Aspose Words . It worked great till now .Happy with the progress .

I am Stuck with find and Replace Functioanlity . Regular find and replace works great .

My Requirement : Find a sentence as whole ,which has merge field in it . And Replace that whole sentence with another sentence which also contains merge field.

Example :


Sentence 1: “blah blah blah <> blah blah”

Sentence 2 : "blah blah blah <> somthing else with next text blah blah"

Now i want to replace the Sentence 1 in my whole document ,with sentence 2

Hope fully its somthing easy to accomplish with aspose :slight_smile:


Regards,
Jaswanth



Hi Jaswanth,

Thanks for your inquiry. In your case, I suggest you please move the cursor to the mail merge field and get the current paragraph node and insert new contents according to your requirements. After inserting the new contents, remove the paragraph which contain the mail merge field. Please read following documentation links for your kind reference.
http://www.aspose.com/docs/display/wordsnet/Moving+the+Cursor
http://www.aspose.com/docs/display/wordsnet/Inserting+Document+Elements


Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "in.docx");

DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

builder.MoveToMergeField("mergeField", true, false);

//Paragraph that contain the merge field.

Paragraph para = (Paragraph)builder.CurrentNode.ParentNode;

builder.MoveTo(para);

builder.InsertBreak(BreakType.ParagraphBreak);

builder.Write("new paragraph ");

builder.InsertField(@"MERGEFIELD MyFieldName \* MERGEFORMAT");

builder.Write(" somthing else with next text blah blah");

para.Remove();

doc.Save(MyDir + "Out.docx");


You can also achieve your requirement by implementing IReplacingCallback interface.
Please use the same approach shared at following documentation link to
find text and insert new paragraph.

Hope this helps you. Please let us know if you have any more queries.

Hi ,

Thank You for the response .

The Issue is . Sentence 1 is a small part of a paragraph . The Other text in the paragraph i wanted to maintain that text . Its just that ,i wanted to replace the whole Sentence 1 with Sentence 2 in the paragraph and maintain the rest of the paragraph .

Dont want to remove the entire paragraph.

Thanks for your inquiry. It would be great if you please share following detail for investigation purposes.


  • Please attach your input Word document.
  • Please
    attach your target Word document showing the desired behavior. You can
    use Microsoft Word to create your target Word document. I will
    investigate as to how you are expecting your final document be generated
    like.

Hi

The input is as follow in the document .

INPUT :

This is a wonderful paragraph with lots of twists and tales. Please remove this sentence and replace <> with another sentence.Hello this is a wonder morning with lots monday blues.


OUTPUT :

This is a wonderful paragraph with lots of twists and tales. This has been such a wonderful challenge tag along so many <> accross all the platforms.Hello this is a wonder morning with lots monday blues.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I hope this makes sense . Please let me know if you still need the input and output documents.

Now the bottom line is , I wanted to replace the whole “Please remove this sentence and replace <> with another sentence.” in my entire document where ever the sentence matches with "This has been such a wonderful challenge tag along so many <> accross all the platforms."


Thanks,
Jaswanth
