How to read a Word file as template when export Excel file to PDF

Dear Sir :grinning:

I’ve a issue about:

  1. read Excel file, save as PDF.
  2. Add header/footer on every PDF pages.
  3. Header and footer save in a Word file. (For easy maintaining, it’s a a bit complicated.)

I’m stuck on
How to read a Word file as template when export Excel file to PDF” ?

The header is an image placed on left-top, I try to load *.svg and meet a OOM exception.
Now I use a large size *.png image with small zoom scale, it makes image more sharper.

The footer has a complex layout, with table and floating-color-text.
I tried to solve it with transfer to a image, but the hyperlinked text in it could not be recognized and became clickable.

Any suggestion?

Great thanks and sorry for my poor English. :sweat_smile:

Here is a simple draw to show what I want to do ( and what I can do now)

My test console project is too large, I uploaded to the cloud, plz reference:


  1. I remove the license just in case, our company use 19.1.0 Aspose.Total
  2. All source files are in the {project}\bin\Debug\src\
  • report.xlsm is our raw data
  • header.png & footer.png are grab from word_temp.docx
  1. When the console running finished, files will save to {project}\bin\Debug\exp\

Hope these are helpful and thank you again for your GREAT help. :blush:


Thanks for sharing sample project.

We have checked the sample application and would like to share with you that Aspose.Words does not provide the functionality to convert header/footer regions to images. For the sake of implementation, we have logged an investigation ticket as WORDSNET-20509 in our issue tracking system. We will investigate the feasibility of required feature and keep you informed with the status of its availability. Please spare us some time.
