I am doing a sort of custom report engine that will use existing Word templates for layout. Tabular data will use pre-existing tables in the templates. I plant to handle row creation within those tables by cloning a pre-existing data row (as opposed to a header row) and fill values to the cells. This approach allows non-developers to define very precise layout and formatting. I want a clean separations between data, format and the mechanism for placing the data into format.
I am planning on useing bookmarks to identify insertion locations. To this end, I would like to have the persons editing the Word templates to place some monikor (bookmark, etc.) to identify specific tables for association with particular data sets. This is preferable to making the associations based on assumptions of the ordinality of tables in the document. I thought that the bookmarks can be placed either around, adjacent or within the table. However, I am at a loss as to how to navigate through the Aspose object model to find the bookmark given a reference to a table.
I would appreciate suggestions on how to solve my basic problem of needing to identify tables by name, names being established by the perons editing the Word templates.
Thanks in advance
