Hi Team,

String parastr="";
Iterator NodeList = para.getChildNodes().iterator();
try {
while (NodeList.hasNext()) {
Node aNode = NodeList.next();
if (aNode.getNodeType() == NodeType.RUN) {
if (!aNode.getText().endsWith(ControlChar.LINE_BREAK)) {
parastr = parastr + aNode.toString(SaveFormat.TEXT);
else {
parastr = parastr + " ";
else if (aNode.getNodeType() == NodeType.FIELD_START) {
Node fnode = NodeList.next();
while (fnode.getNodeType() != NodeType.FIELD_SEPARATOR && fnode.getNodeType() != NodeType.FIELD_END) {
fnode = NodeList.next();
}catch(Exception e) {
