How to fetch/read/update Word documents "dataBinding" element through Aspose.Word


Does Aspose.Word supports updating XML data mapping associated with content control? From various support messages I feel its not supported by Aspose.Words yet. If so is there a work around to address this.

The need is to read and update all “dataBinding” element’s xpath which is embedded with in the word document for each content control,

<w:dataBinding w:prefixMappings="xmlns:t=" w:xpath="…"

We are under process of procuring this software but we also need this function to be working for our document processing.

Please guide us with all options we can leverage to handle this.
