Hi Aspose -
I'm wondering about memory usage during a Mail Merge. Let's say I'm creating letters to 500 recipients and I have a Word Template that includes a graphic logo in the header. (The 500 recipients are contained in a DataView.)
When I execute the mail merge, does the resulting Aspose Document reside completely within the memory of the server? In this scenario for me, the resulting Word document is about 12 Mb. In other words, would the entire 12 Mb be occupied in the server's RAM before the file is written to disk or sent to the browser?
Additionally, if the Word template has a graphic logo in the header of the template, does the graphic get repeated for each iteration of the merge? That would explain why my resulting file (after merging 500 names) is 12 Mb. Yes, I've tested without the graphic and the resulting file is about 1.7 Mb.
Do you have any recommendations on how to keep memory usage to a minimum? I'm running Aspose.Words in a shared hosting environment in which my application is allocated 100Mb of RAM, so if a single user consumes 10 or 20Mb, that's a huge percentage of my available space.
I appreciate any thoughts you may have on this.
