Manipulating existing content

Hi,

Can you tell me if it is possible to manipulate existing content in a Word document rather than just adding new content.

For example if my word template already contained a data table could I use Aspose Word to insert new columns which could then be populated when I did a mailmerge?

Thanks,
Si.

Hi,

Thank you for considering Aspose.

In general, the current object model does not intended for manipulating existing content (e.g. expanding objects). Regarding the tables, you can however try to move to a cell and insert other cells although it will look like a workaround rather than like a standard method.
