Let me start by situating my problem :
I have a lot
of old word templates that used to be populated with data using Word’s
mail merge function. Some of these documents contain Fill-In fields.
Merging these documents the old way, Word kept popping up a textbox,
asking to fill in the required fields. (As it should be doing)
I want to use these templates with Aspose.Words, I need some way for
the functionality of these Fill-in fields to remain. Since all the
templates have to be registered in our system, I thought it would be
easy to find and replace any Fill-in fields at the time they (the
templates) are registered and stored.
Example: I have a template containing 3 Fill-in fields.
- Fill-In Shoe size?
- Fill-In Lenght?
- Fill-In Weight?
- MERGEFIELD FI_SHOESIZE
- MERGEFIELD FI_LENGTH
- MERGEFIELD FI_WEIGHT
This metadata being :
- FI_SHOESIZE = Shoe size?
How can I achieve this using Aspose.Words? Is there an easy way to change the FieldType?
Thanks in advance
