Hi

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Thank you for additional information. If you would like to remove this field by name you can try using the following code:

// Open document

Document doc = new Document("testdoc.docx");

// Get all FieldStart from the document.

Node[] fieldStarts = doc.GetChildNodes(NodeType.FieldStart, true).ToArray();

// Loop through all FieldStart.

foreach (FieldStart fieldStart in fieldStarts)

{

if (fieldStart.FieldType == FieldType.FieldDocProperty)

{

string fieldCode = string.Empty;

Node currentNode = fieldStart;

//Get Field code

while (currentNode.NodeType != NodeType.FieldSeparator)

{

if (currentNode.NodeType == NodeType.Run)

fieldCode += (currentNode as Run).Text;

currentNode = currentNode.NextSibling;

}

currentNode = fieldStart;

//We should get Property name from field code

Regex regex = new Regex(@"\s*(?\S+)\s+(?\S+)\s*(?.*)");

Match match = regex.Match(fieldCode);

string propertyName = match.Groups["propname"].Value;

if (propertyName == "ImanageFooterVariable")

{

// Remove this field

while (currentNode.NodeType != NodeType.FieldEnd)

{

currentNode = currentNode.NextSibling;

currentNode.PreviousSibling.Remove();

}

currentNode.Remove();

}

}

}

// Save output document

doc.Save("out.docx");

Or you can just clear your footer:

doc.Sections[0].HeadersFooters.Clear();

Please let me know in case of any issues. I will be glad to help you.

Best regards,

thank you very very match
