We are using Microsoft Word at the Server side to achieve the following in a project for our client:
1. Merge and Paginate
a.Merge multiple Word documents into one word document. e.g. Two documents exist 420.doc, 430.doc and these are being merged into one file say Myfile.doc. Each merged file becomes a separate section in the merged document.
b. Paginate the merged document with page number appearing in the footer with a suffix containing the original file name i.e. 420-34.
c. Remove any previous header that the original document may have and insert a new Header with a logo image and some other data variables.
2. Fill document templates.
If you think the above are possible using Aspose.Word and it is more stable than Word(in server side), please let me know. We would then recommend our clients to buy Aspose.
Please let me know if you require further details.
