Image problem


I have a report template with diffrent orientations(both Landscape and Portrait). I am using Aspose.word to merge individual documents into a single one using this report template based on bookmarks. While merging, if any individual document is not found, then I am removing corresponding section to avoid blank pages. When I am deleting blank pages, the header image is changed according to page orientation. But, sometimes its not changed and remain same.

Aspose.Words.License license = new Aspose.Words.License();


Document mainDoc = new Document("C:\\ReportRepository\\ReportTemplate.docx");

MergeDocument(mainDoc,"C:\\ServiceImprovementPlan.doc", "ServiceImprovementPlan", 5);

MergeDocument(mainDoc, "C:\\SummaryOfIncidentsClosed.doc", "SummaryOfIncidentsClosed", 6);

MergeDocument(mainDoc, "C:\\SummaryOfIncidentsOpen.doc", "SummaryofIncidentsOpen", 6);

MergeDocument(mainDoc, "C:\\SummaryOfIncidentsNotMetSLA.doc", "SummaryOfIncidentsNotMetSLA", 17);

private static void MergeDocument(Document mainDoc, string path, string bookmarkName, int sectionNo)


if (File.Exists(path))


//Get document form specified path.

Document subDoc = new Document(path);

DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(subDoc);

builder.RowFormat.AllowAutoFit = false;

//Get specified bookmark define in document.

Aspose.Words.Bookmark bookmark = mainDoc.Range.Bookmarks[bookmarkName];

//Insert document below the specified bookmark.

InsertDocument(bookmark.BookmarkStart.ParentNode, subDoc);




//this code removes the blank pages

Node node = mainDoc.Range.Bookmarks[bookmarkName].BookmarkStart;

while (node.NodeType != NodeType.Section) node = node.ParentNode;




In the above code the problem occurs when ServiceImprovementPlan.doc is not available and when I delete the page for ServiceImprovementPlan, the header image is still in same size even in Landscape pages.

I have attached the report template and final document.

Please provide a workaround for this ASAP.

Thanks for your request. The problem occurs because Header/Footers in your document are linked. See the attached screenshot.

So when you remove the section from the document, the following sections inherits headers/footers from the previous section. In your case this section has Portrait orientation.

To resolve the problem, you should unlink headers/fetters in your template.

Best regards.

Thank you very much. We have changed the template as you suggested and it works fine.

Thanks & Regards
