Getting ArgumentOutOfRangeException during ConvertToPDF


I'm trying to generate pdf documents from docx templates. I filled this docx templates with xml data and then convert generated docx document to pdf. I use mail merge to generate.
When I'm trying to convert to pdf the generated word document with Tables (by the way, as you'll see I use ExecuteGroup method to fill table with data), I got ArgumentOutOfRangeException (Length cannot be less than zero).

On the other hand, when I generate document 'without' table and use Execute mailmerge method, I'm able to successfully convert generated document to pdf with ConvertToPDF() method. 

I attached docx template, the xml data and the code I use for generate document. Am I doing something wrong?


DocToPDFConverter docToPdfConverter = new DocToPDFConverter();

            WordDocument document = new WordDocument();
            document.Open(templateFilePath + "TemplateWithTable.docx");

            document.MailMerge.MergeImageField += MailMergeOnMergeImageField;

            XDocument xmlDoc = null;

            using (StreamReader oReader = new StreamReader(templateFilePath + "XMLData.xml", Encoding.GetEncoding("ISO-8859-9")))
                xmlDoc = XDocument.Load(oReader);

            //data get from db as xml file
            DataSet ds = new DataSet();

            DataTableCollection childTables = ds.Tables;

            foreach (DataTable childTable in childTables)
                if(childTable.TableName != "root")


            document.Save(templateFilePath + "GeneratedDocument.doc");

            //I get the exception on this line!
            PdfDocument pdfDocument = docToPdfConverter.ConvertToPDF(templateFilePath + "GeneratedDocument.doc");
            pdfDocument.Save(templateFilePath + "GeneratedDocument.pdf");

Thanks for your help.
