Merge with regions and Bookmarks


I'm trying to perform a merge-with-regions and there are some bookmarks inside my region. I want to copy the bookmarks as well. The reason I want to copy the bookmarks is that I need to use some application logic to delete selected instance of these internal bookmarks.

The problem is that everything between my <> and <> mergefields gets copied except for the nested bookmarks.

Is there a way to copy bookmarks (with new names), or is there a better approach.

Please help.

Thanks in advance.

Hi<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Thanks for your inquiry. You can rename bookmarks during MailMerge using MergeField event handler. For example see the following code.

public void Test060()


//Create DataSourse

DataTable table = new DataTable("myTable");


for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)


DataRow row = table.NewRow();

row[0] = "kjsdf;jshd;fkjs";



//Open document

Document doc = new Document(@"Test060\in.doc");

//Add MergeField event handler

doc.MailMerge.MergeField += new MergeFieldEventHandler(MailMerge_MergeField_060);




//Index of bookmark

int bookmarkIndex = 0;

void MailMerge_MergeField_060(object sender, MergeFieldEventArgs e)


if (e.FieldName == "field1")


//Get parent node of mergefiled

CompositeNode node = e.Field.Start.ParentParagraph;

while (node != null)


//Get bookmarkstart collection

NodeCollection starts = node.GetChildNodes(NodeType.BookmarkStart, true);

if (starts.Count > 0)


//Rename bookamrks

foreach (BookmarkStart start in starts)


start.Bookmark.Name = start.Bookmark.Name + bookmarkIndex.ToString();




if (node.NextSibling.IsComposite)


node = (CompositeNode)node.NextSibling;









I hope this could help you. Also you can remove content from region using MergeFiled event handler.

Best regards.

Thankyou Alexey.
