Hi!

I just stumbled across this thread

https://www.syncfusion.com/forums/138504/server-side-helper-library-word-documents-to-sfdt-format

where one of your employees stated the Document Editor (will have) has mail merge support. Is this implemented yet? If yes there is no documentation about that


Thanks in advance

Paul

Hi Paul, 
 
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 
 
Currently Document Editor doesn’t support Mail Merge. The Mail Merge support will be included in our 2019 volume 2 release (17.2) which will be rolled out at the end of June 2019 tentatively. 
 
However, you can achieve mail merge with the help of DocIO (a server library) through a web service. So kindly share your requirement on this to provide you the prompt solution at the earliest. 
 
Regards 
Prakash Kumar

Hi Faisal, 
 
To perform mail merge, in DocumentEditor, we don’t have built-in mail merge functionality. Due to unexpected changes in our release plan, Mail Merge feature will not available. We will implement this feature in any of our upcoming release. You can track the status of this feature through below feedback link: 
Once, the feature is considered for implementation, we will move the scheduled status of above feedback link with release version. 
 
You can perform Mail-merge in server side by using Syncfusion.DocIO library.    
  
You can insert field in document editor using insertField method in editor module.    
    
container.documentEditor.editor.insertField('MERGEFIELD '+text+' \\* MERGEFORMAT', '{{'+text+'}}');   
    
First parameter refer: fieldcode and second parameter is display text.      
       
You can find more detail about mail merge functionality from below KB link.   
    
 
Regards, 
Suriya M.
