Tabs in merge field


At the moment we are using the Microsoft office objects to merge Word documents, but want to migrate to Aspose words.

At the moment we create a table on the template document with the columns headers and one empty row. We then add a merge field into this empty row. We use HTML formated text to populate the merge field using “” to insert tabs. Then if there are 4 columns we add the text for each column seperated by the tab HTML. The row text then alligns with the headers.

After testing I see that the “” HTML is not recognised by Aspose words and ControlChar.Tab only adds a single space. Do you have a solution for this issue? We have hundreds of templates and would like to implement Aspose without any changes to these documents.
