Problems with Merge Fields

Dear Aspose Team,

i got a problem, when using a merge field with a calculation. In the draft the calculation is performed. But in the generated document the whole merge field is deleted.

Please see encluded documents.

Thanks for your help.

Hi

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

Thanks for your inquiry. Could you please attach your template here for testing and provide me your code? I will check the issue on my side and provide you more information.

Best regards,

Hello Andrey,

thanks for your Request. The templatefile is the file named “in.doc”. The used code is here:

import com.aspose.barcode.BarCodeBuilder;
import com.aspose.barcode.License;
import com.aspose.barcode.Symbology;
import com.aspose.words.BorderType;
import com.aspose.words.Document;
import com.aspose.words.DocumentBuilder;
import com.aspose.words.LineStyle;
import com.aspose.words.ParagraphAlignment;
import com.aspose.words.TextureIndex;
import com.aspose.words.Underline;

import java.awt.*;

public class Hauptklasse
{
public static final void main(String args[]) throws Exception {


//Open the template document
Document doc = new Document(“C:\in.doc”);

//Once the builder is created, its cursor is positioned at the beginning of the document.
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

//Specify font formatting before adding text.
builder.getFont().setSize(16);
builder.getFont().setBold(true);
builder.getFont().setColor(Color.BLUE);
builder.getFont().setName(“Arial”);
builder.setUnderline(Underline.DASH);
builder.write(“This text”);
builder.setUnderline(Underline.NONE);
builder.write(" is inserted at the beginning of the document and demonstrates “);

//Set shading and border around a run of text, then clear the border.
builder.getFont().getShading().setForegroundPatternColor(Color.CYAN);
builder.getFont().getShading().setTexture(TextureIndex.TEXTURE_SOLID);
builder.write(“various font”);
builder.getFont().getShading().clearFormatting();
builder.getFont().getBorder().setLineStyle(LineStyle.SINGLE);
builder.write(” formatting ");
builder.getFont().getBorder().clearFormatting();
builder.writeln(“options.”);
builder.insertParagraph();

//Move the insertion cursor to a merge field.
builder.moveToMergeField(“MyInsertionPlace1”);

//Specify paragraph formatting before calling InsertParagraph or Writeln.
builder.getParagraphFormat().getBorders().get(BorderType.TOP).setLineStyle(LineStyle.DOUBLE);
builder.getParagraphFormat().getBorders().get(BorderType.TOP).setLineWidth(2);
builder.getParagraphFormat().setAlignment(ParagraphAlignment.CENTER);
builder.getParagraphFormat().getShading().setForegroundPatternColor(new Color(240, 255, 255));
builder.getParagraphFormat().getShading().setTexture(TextureIndex.TEXTURE_SOLID);
builder.getParagraphFormat().setLeftIndent(2 * 72); //2 inchdes by 72 points.
builder.getParagraphFormat().setSpaceBefore(12);
builder.getParagraphFormat().setSpaceAfter(12);
builder.getFont().setName(“Arial”);
builder.getFont().setSize(12);
builder.write("This fragment demonstrates use of paragraph formatting to specify ");
builder.writeln(“alignment, spacing, borders and shading.”);
builder.getParagraphFormat().clearFormatting();

doc.save(“C:\out.doc”);

}
}

The generated output file is: “out.doc”.

Now i have the following problem. You see the fields in the template file “in.doc”. When you type in the Fields “Länge” “Breite” “Höhe” integer Values, the field “Volumen” calculates the result.

When i open this file with Aspose and do thinks like above, and save the file, the calculate field swallow the formula for calculation.

Please help, because the code didn’t do something with the calculation formel.

Thanks for help

Frank

It seems the problem you have reported earlier does not occur with the latest version of Aspose.Words. Could you please check and confirm? You can download the latest version of Aspose.Words for java from here:
