command used is as shown.
Docfinal.AppendDocument(dsttemp, ImportFormatMode.KeepSourceFormatting);

@dkapell,

Thanks for sharing the documents. Please note that Aspose.Words mimics the behavior of MS Word. If you join both documents using MS Word, you will get the same output.

I guess that is true, but the AppendDocument method is not the same a the merge documents in word. For example there is no option to Keepsourceformatting when merging documents. Merging documents also does not honor page separation.

@dkapell,

Thanks for your inquiry. Please open your documents in MS Word. Insert the section break (new page) at the end of “file1.docx” and copy the content of “file2.docx”. You will get the paste options. Please check the attached image for detail. keep source formatting.png (23.6 KB)

thanks. I’ll have to look for another solution to this issue.
