Problems with positioning fields in Word template

Problems with positioning fields in Word template.

I have a Word template (.dotx). In this template I have in the header of the second page a default barcode (in a table), which I want to replace with the real barcode I generate with Aspose Barcode for this item. How can I replace this barcode?

I also want to insert a new table on the second page, on a specific place on the page. I succeeded to insert the table after a new section, but I want to place it after a specific (Merge)Field or something like that. How can I position the cursor? I cann't position the cursor with MoveToField.

I will sent the java class, the input template and the created document with this message.

Hi Ernst,

Thanks for your inquiry.

Please try run the following code snippet, this replaces your sample BarCode image with another Image.
Document doc = new Document("C:\\Temp\\TestFormulier.dotx");
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

DrawingML dml = (DrawingML)doc.getFirstSection().getHeadersFooters()
.getByHeaderFooterType(HeaderFooterType.HEADER_PRIMARY)
.getChildNodes(NodeType.DRAWING_ML, true).get(0);

Paragraph refPara = (Paragraph)dml.getParentParagraph();

dml.remove();

builder.moveTo(refPara);
builder.insertImage(“C:\Temp\NewBarCode.png”);

doc.save(“C:\Temp\out.docx”);

I believe, you can achieve this after reading the article suggested below:

Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
