Mail Merge- table not formatting in new version

Hi,

I’ve run into an issue between Aspose.Word .NET versions 15.01 and 15.11/16.01 when doing a mail merge.

When processing a document the using version 15.01, the table format is correctly maintained (refer tester_output_15.01.docx), but when using version 15.11/16.01, the table formatting is incorrect (refer tester_output_16.01.docx).

Our UAT/PROD environments are using 15.11, but the DEV box was using 15.01.

Could you please have a look and let me know how to resolve this issue.

Regards,
Bernard

Hi Bernard,


Thanks for your inquiry. Please create a standalone console application (source code without compilation errors) that helps us reproduce your problem on our end and attach it here for testing.

Best regards,

Have attached a console app as requested. This is with version 15.01 of Aspose Word, and it works Ok. Upgrade to version 15.11+ and you will see the issue with the table.

Hi Bernard,


Thanks for your inquiry. We tested the scenario and have managed to reproduce the same problem on our end.

Our product team will further look into the details of this problem and we will keep you updated on the status of correction. We apologize for your inconvenience.

Best regards,

Hi Awais,
do you have an ETA on when this fix will be available? We would like to release our enhancements within the next week but cannot until this bug has ben resolved.

Hi Bernard,


Thanks for your inquiry. The issue occurs because table structure is currently not updated when merging adjacent tables.

The tables are merged by just putting all the rows in the same table container in the document model. The method does currently not calculate grid spans or horizontal merges to maintain relative cell widths. So, for example, if one row had one cell and a merged row had two cells, the table becomes jagged, according to the model.

The new table layout algorithm calculates the cell widths from the incorrect model, so the result is incorrect. Aspose.Words’ table merger should update cell grid spans based on the cell widths before merge.

The resolution of this issue depends on an internal issue (WORDSNET-11005). We think we will implement WORDSNET-11005 soon, but we will need some experiments before giving an ETA.

We will inform you as soon as this issue is resolved. We apologize for your inconvenience.
