Hi,

Thank you for reporting to us. I managed to reproduce the problem. I created an issue #3913 in our defects database and we will investigate whether and when it can be fixed. Please expect a reply before the next hotfix (within 2-3 weeks).

Best regards.

Sorry, we have closed this defect because this is not a bug. Just call

doc.UpdateWordCount();

to get the correct result.

Thank you.

Please can any one let me know what i will do for this.

hi that method is only for get true word count from that we can not get true line count for that you have to contact support team

Hi

Thanks for your request. Unfortunately, Aspose.Words can’t update lines count yet. That’s why you should update this value using MS Word.

If you use the code like the following code then you will get wrong line count.

Document doc = new Document(@"290_99846_namin@globalmeddata.net\in.doc");

DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

builder.Writeln("Test"); //write line into the document

int count = doc.BuiltInDocumentProperties.Lines; //will return wrong value

Best regards.
