I have a Word template in which some of the mail merge fields are embedded within a shape object. These fields are not being populated by MailMerge.Execute, nor are they being returned by MailMerge.GetFieldNames. Is there a way to merge data into these fields?
Here you go: The template, data file, and source code are in this zip. Also, I noticed we have an old version of Aspose.Words (6.5). I wanted to see if the newest version would solve this issue so I downloaded the trial. Unfortunately there’s no license in the download and I haven’t received one via email.
I just tried again using the latest (evaluation) version of the product and I’m having the same problem. The fields that are not embedded in the shape object (Customer Name, Billing Address, City, State, etc.) are merging correctly. The shape object is not being rendered at all on the output .pdf.
That did it! I guess I hadn’t actually bound the latest assembly. Thanks for your help.
