My company is using a Word to PDF to TIFF process that relies on Word.Interop. The problem with it is that date fields are auto-updating and we can’t seem to disable that before they get updated. I worked with Aspose before, but I’m not sure about this part. When Apsose.Words loads a document, does it update auto-update fields? If so, is there a way to disable that for a document?
foreach (FieldStart start in doc.GetChildNodes(NodeType.FieldStart, true))
if (start.FieldType == FieldType.FieldDate)
start.IsLocked = true;
At the beginning there, when Document doc = new Document(@“C:\Temp\in.docx”); is executed, do fields get updated on open? If so, can that be disabled? I don’t want to lose the value in the field when I open the document.
