I have two requirements
1. After uploading a word template to server I want only to retrieve data from table which match to fields in word template. As an example suppose my template consists with <<name>> and <<tel no>> fields. Without having knowledge about it but just using template get the details of those columns. (In simple word read the fields in word template )

2. This is little bit  related to 1st one, What will happen when if user uploads wrong template, How do I check that (I mean content)..

I found this method 
string[] fieldNames = doc.MailMerge.GetMergeFieldNames();
but this works only for EmployeesReportDemo.doc template given by Syncfusion and it also only gives the first field name only.( <<Employees>> ). And this is not working templates which generated by my self. I follow correct way to create templates. Please help me.
