We’re about to make a choice:
Aspose.Word + Aspose.PDF
Aspose.Word + BCL easyPDF
We need to take a templatised Word document (.DOC will suffice) inserting data/text into Word fields. We need to programatically set images in the document. We need to then export this to PDF.
This all happens on a server, within a .NET .ASMX Web Service.
The problem is this: we need to support columns. Word columns. I can’t quite see how to make it work with tables. We need the flow layout that columns gives us.
The number templates will be added to by our client as time goes on, so this needs to be an extensible solution that requires no more programming after go-live.
When I use Aspose.Word and Aspose.PDF I find the resulting PDF loses all column formatting.
I need to make a decision very, very soon. We will be developing the solution from the beginning of November.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
