ODT : Aspose.Word ExecuteWithRegions(ds)

I’m trying to use Aspose.Word 9.0.0 to generate an OpenOffice Writter document with region.
Source :

License licence = new License();
Document document = new Document(PathTmpModele);
document.Save(FichierSortie, SaveFormat.Odt);

Dataset ds and Odt document are attached

Could you please give me an exemple of Odt generation whith ExecuteWithRegion ? I don’t see how to link data with sections in my document to repeat them for each record.


Thanks for your inquiry. To use mail merge feature, you need to insert merge fields in your template:
Here you can learn how to format regions:
Hope this helps. Please let me know in case of any issues, I will be glad to help you.
Best regards.

Hi Alexey,
Thanks for reply.
I’m already using Microsoft Word template. Could you please give me some information about OpenOffice Writer template ? How must be declared region and mergefield in an odt document to work with Aspose Word ? (I load an odt template in my Aspose.Word document)


Thanks for your inquiry. To use mail merge with region, your template should contain mergefields with names TableStart:RegionName or TableStart_RegionName and TableEnd:RegionName or TableEnd_RegionName. Such fields marks start and end of document’s portion, which should be repeated for each record in your datasource. I attached sample ODT template for your reference. Here is code I use to fill it with data:

DataTable data = new DataTable("Test");
for (int i = 0; i <10; i++)
    data.Rows.Add(new object[]
        string.Format("test_{0}", i)
Document doc = new Document(@"Test001\in.odt");

Also, if you just need to generate ODT output, you can use DOC or DOCX file as a template. And then just save the output document in ODT format.
Best regards.

Thanks for help, I’ll try this.
