InsertField in Footer causes issue with Table Cell Merging (really!)

Hi

I have an issue that I have tracked down to the InsertField procedure

When I create a table with some merging, it works fine until InsertField is called elsewhere in the document generation - this causes the table to lose some of the merging previously formatted.

I have created some example code to demonstrate

// Create document and builder
Document Document = new Aspose.Words.Document();
DocumentBuilder DocumentBuilder = new DocumentBuilder(Document);

Table Table1 = DocumentBuilder.StartTable();

//********
// Row 1
//********

// Create cell
DocumentBuilder.InsertCell();
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.VerticalMerge = CellMerge.First;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.HorizontalMerge = CellMerge.None;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.PreferredWidth = PreferredWidth.FromPoints(ConvertUtil.MillimeterToPoint(166.9));
DocumentBuilder.Font.Bold = true;
DocumentBuilder.Write("Trade Sign Off");
DocumentBuilder.Font.Bold = false;
DocumentBuilder.Write(" – All work order tasks have been completed as instructed and all documentation has been completed");

// Create cell
DocumentBuilder.InsertCell();
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.VerticalMerge = CellMerge.None;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.HorizontalMerge = CellMerge.First;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.PreferredWidth = PreferredWidth.FromPoints(ConvertUtil.MillimeterToPoint(60));
DocumentBuilder.Write("Name:");

// Create cell
DocumentBuilder.InsertCell();
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.VerticalMerge = CellMerge.None;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.HorizontalMerge = CellMerge.Previous;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.PreferredWidth = PreferredWidth.FromPoints(ConvertUtil.MillimeterToPoint(46.9));
DocumentBuilder.Write("");

// End Row
DocumentBuilder.EndRow();

//********
// Row 2
//********

// Create cell
DocumentBuilder.InsertCell();
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.VerticalMerge = CellMerge.Previous;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.HorizontalMerge = CellMerge.None;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.PreferredWidth = PreferredWidth.FromPoints(ConvertUtil.MillimeterToPoint(166.9));
DocumentBuilder.Write("");

// Create cell
DocumentBuilder.InsertCell();
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.VerticalMerge = CellMerge.None;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.HorizontalMerge = CellMerge.None;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.PreferredWidth = PreferredWidth.FromPoints(ConvertUtil.MillimeterToPoint(60));
DocumentBuilder.Write("Signature By Me:");

// Create cell
DocumentBuilder.InsertCell();
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.VerticalMerge = CellMerge.None;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.HorizontalMerge = CellMerge.None;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.PreferredWidth = PreferredWidth.FromPoints(ConvertUtil.MillimeterToPoint(46.9));
DocumentBuilder.Write("Date:");

// End Row
DocumentBuilder.EndRow();

//********
// Row 3
//********

// Create cell
DocumentBuilder.InsertCell();
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.VerticalMerge = CellMerge.First;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.HorizontalMerge = CellMerge.None;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.PreferredWidth = PreferredWidth.FromPoints(ConvertUtil.MillimeterToPoint(166.9));
DocumentBuilder.Font.Bold = true;
DocumentBuilder.Write("Supervisor Sign Off");
DocumentBuilder.Font.Bold = false;
DocumentBuilder.Write(" – Work Order has been completed to a satisfactory standard, regulatory W/Os have been completed and corrective W/Os have been generated for issues found.");

// Create cell
DocumentBuilder.InsertCell();
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.VerticalMerge = CellMerge.None;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.HorizontalMerge = CellMerge.First;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.PreferredWidth = PreferredWidth.FromPoints(ConvertUtil.MillimeterToPoint(60));
DocumentBuilder.Write("Name:");

// Create cell
DocumentBuilder.InsertCell();
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.VerticalMerge = CellMerge.None;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.HorizontalMerge = CellMerge.Previous;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.PreferredWidth = PreferredWidth.FromPoints(ConvertUtil.MillimeterToPoint(46.9));
DocumentBuilder.Write("");

// End Row
DocumentBuilder.EndRow();

//********
// Row 4
//********

// Create cell
DocumentBuilder.InsertCell();
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.VerticalMerge = CellMerge.Previous;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.HorizontalMerge = CellMerge.None;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.PreferredWidth = PreferredWidth.FromPoints(ConvertUtil.MillimeterToPoint(166.9));
DocumentBuilder.Write("");

// Create cell
DocumentBuilder.InsertCell();
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.VerticalMerge = CellMerge.None;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.HorizontalMerge = CellMerge.None;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.PreferredWidth = PreferredWidth.FromPoints(ConvertUtil.MillimeterToPoint(60));
DocumentBuilder.Write("Signature:");

// Create cell
DocumentBuilder.InsertCell();
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.VerticalMerge = CellMerge.None;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.HorizontalMerge = CellMerge.None;
DocumentBuilder.CellFormat.PreferredWidth = PreferredWidth.FromPoints(ConvertUtil.MillimeterToPoint(46.9));
DocumentBuilder.Write("Date:");

// End Row
DocumentBuilder.EndRow();

// End Table
DocumentBuilder.EndTable();

DocumentBuilder.InsertField("Page");

If you take out the last line, you will have a correctly formatted table - with it in, it causes issues with the merging.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers

Hi Adam,

Thanks for your query. This is a known issue, please share in which format you are saving the document so that I will link this forum thread to the appropriate issue.


Hi Tahir


Thanks for the response. Our users will have the choice of Doc, Docx and RTF for output.

I did some further testing and found if I create the sections and footers before populating the document, it works for Doc, but still has the same problem for Docx

Thanks

A
