HTML Mail Merge Format Inheritance


My current problem is that I’m retrieving some data from a database that’s going to be merged onto a Word document. The data is converted to an HTML string and sent to be merged onto the doc. I’ve investigated the issue and find that the merge is somehow causing the inheritance of styling to not take affect. I’ve verified that the HTML is all correct by simply placing it into a blank xml document and seeing the correct behavior of formatting.

In this case, test would only show up as underlined.
Is this an issue with ASPose.Words? Are there any fixes for this? Am I missing something? Thanks for your time.


Hi Andrew,

Thanks for your request. Currently Aspose.Words does not support inheriting styles from parent objects in HTML. This is known issue #7234 in our defect database.
