I'm saving all merge templates as byte arrays in the db, and want to amend them and do a mailmerge later.

I thought i could simply load the bytearray into the richtextbox, then add text, merge fields etc and save the whole thing again as docx
using the richtextbox save method but, later on, when i want to open this merge template again as worddocument to perform a mailmerge
it wont merge the fields with my data

I suspect the merge fields were broken after calling the save as docx on the richtextboxadv.

Can you hekp me on this ?

Thanks again
