We have millions Microsoft Word letters sent to customers, mostly 10 - 20 years old, that we
will use ASPOSE.Words (the one product in the suite we own), called from a VB.NET console application,
to deposit into an archival location as PDF’s.
In many cases, the date of the letter was stored as a Date field, in the original template. As a
result, when the document is opened in Word – or converted to a PDF with the ASPOSE.Words Save method
– the date of the letter becomes the day that the document was archived.
In Microsoft Word, one can right-click on the visible date, click on Update Field, change the field
name from Date to CreateDate, and then see the original date the letter was created and mailed to the
customer. That’s the date we want for the PDF.
So, the question is – what would be the easiest way to have the PDF permanently show the original
date? Another way to phrase it may be: How can we most easily turn off bookmarks and fields?
I’ve looked at the PdfSaveOptions, and the rest of the Saving class, and don’t see it there – although
it may be staring me in the face.
All ideas will be appreciated.
