I am kinda lost here.I downloaded the trial version and I am trying to do mailmerge as I want it to so i shall make up my mind to buy this product.however I just trying create a small app using your dinnerinvitationdemo. Below is the code.I am getting a syntax error in

Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic
Imports System.Data
Imports Aspose.Words
Partial Class _Default
Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
Protected Sub Btnrun_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Btnrun.Click
Dim docpath As String = "C:\CWEB\"
Dim doc As Document = New Document(System.IO.Path.Combine(docpath, "testtemplate.doc"))
'Mail merge customer details from DataTable to the document.
'Whole document content will be repeated for each record.
Dim customers As DataTable = ExecuteDataTable("SELECT TOP 5 * FROM AsposeWordCustomers WHERE Country = 'USA'")
End Sub

please help

Thanks for your inquiry. Most probably the error occurs because you don’t have implementation of ExecuteDataTable method in your project.
To perform selection from data base you should specify connection string, create connection, open connection, execute selection and close connection. For example see the following code:

'Here should be a connection string to your DB
'Create connction 
Dim connectionString As String = "server=Web1;database=TestDB;uid=sa;pwd=yourpassword;"
Dim conn As System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection = New System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection(connectionString)
'Create DataSet
Dim ds As DataSet = New DataSet()
'Create sql command
Dim commandString As String = "SELECT * FROM Clients"
Dim command As System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand = New System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand(commandString, conn)
'Create data adapter
Dim adapter As System.Data.SqlClient.SqlDataAdapter = New System.Data.SqlClient.SqlDataAdapter(command)
'Open connection
'Read dataset
'Check if DataSet contains table
If (ds.Tables.Count > 0) Then
'Open template document
Dim doc As Document = New Document("in.doc")
'Execute mail merge
'Save document
End If

I hope this could help you.
Best regards.
