How to MailMerge complicated table structure with XML

Hi there experts.

I need to make a word document out of XML (please see the attachment xmlExample.xml), and the output should be like in the attached file (tableExample.docx).

The only sollution I can think of at theis moment, is the forbidden way of using MERGEFIELD TableEnd:MyTable in the subsequent row. (Please look at the enclosed file template.docx)

Any ideas how I can accomplish this?

Cheers,
Lucian.

Hi Lucian,

Thanks for your inquiry. Please check the simple rules when marking a region from here:
https://docs.aspose.com/words/java/types-of-mail-merge-operations/

I have modified your template document according to your shared XML data source and desired output. I have highlighted the regions in template document for your kind reference. Hope this helps you.

Moreover, please check following documentation link about ‘How to mail merge from Xml’.
https://docs.aspose.com/words/java/mail-merge-with-xml-data-source/

Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "template_modified.docx");
javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilder db = javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance().newDocumentBuilder();
org.w3c.dom.Document xmlData = db.parse(MyDir + "xmlExample.xml");
doc.getMailMerge().executeWithRegions(new XmlMailMergeDataSet(xmlData));
doc.save(MyDir + "Out.docx");

Hey there Tahir!

Thank you very much for this. You saved me a lot of headache!
Would never have came up with the construct: table in row of another table.

Everything works as expected.

Thanks again!
Cheers,
Lucian.
