I'm wondering about the difference between the BeginGroup-EndGroup tag and the TableStart-TableEnd tag. It seems like I can use them interchangeably and has the same effect when used with the MailMerge.ExecuteGroup. I tried to look for the resource that has the explanation on their usage but I couldn't find it. Also, I'm looking for a listing of all the available merge field tags that I can use, e.g., BeginGroup:, TableStart:, Image:, etc. One of the things I hope to find is a tag that will make a MergeField a hyperlink text as it will contain a URL.

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion Products.

Nested mail merge for a table works when the group start and end is StartTable and EndTable respectively.
For example, this can be used in a scenario when for every record of the datatable/dataset, a new row is inserted to the table.

Nested mail merge for a region works when the group start and end is BeginGroup and EndGroup respectively.
For example, this can be used in a scenario when for every record of the datatable/dataset, a new section is created and merged in the document.

Please refer the online documentation link for nested mail merge given below:

Please find the online sample for nested mail merge below:

Below is the list of available merge field tags that can be used while performing Mail Merge using DocIO.

• TableStart (Eg. “TableStart:Employees”)
• TableEnd (Eg. “TableEnd:Employees”)
• BeginGroup (Eg. “BeginGroup:Employees”)
• EndGroup (Eg. “EndGroup:Employees”)
• Image (Eg. “Image:Photo”)

Please let us know if you have any further questions.
