Unsolicited Check Boxes after Aspose.Words.Document.MailMerge

I'm finding that when a mail merge field is enclosed in parentheses that calling MailMerge.Execute(object[], object[]) is adding check boxes to the output document.

Reference "Really Simple Renewal.doc" as the input, "Completed Really Simple Renewal.doc" as the output and here is the code for the test case.

Dim doc As Aspose.Words.Document = New Aspose.Words.Document(inputDirPath & fileName)

Dim oPath As String = outputDirPath & Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(fileName) + ".doc"

Dim tags() As String = New String() {"PT4_Individual", "PT4_IndividualEntity", _

"PT4_IndividualEntity_SoleProprietor", "PT4_IndividualEnity_LLC", "PT4_IndividualEnity_PC", _

"PT4_IndividualEnity_PA", "PT4_IndividualEnity_Corp"}

Dim values() As Object = New Object() {"FishKill", "", "", "", "", "", ""}

doc.MailMerge.Execute(tags, values)

doc.UpdateFields()

doc.Save(oPath)

Hi,


Thanks for the inquiry.Your template document Really Simple Renewal.doc contains check box form field before the first merge field.You can check field codes by using the keyboard shortcut Alt+F9. Field codes appear between curly braces.

Thanks Nabeel.

Sorry to have bothered you with what turns out to be such a trivial problem.
