How to render text with HTML tags to Formatted text in a Word document


I have a string text = "<b>Hello</b>". 

How is it possible to insert it into a Word document using DocIO to display as Hello instead? 

I have a string from the database, which contains various HTML tags such as <p>, <strong>, <b> and so on which I need to keep formatted in my Word document file.

I am inserting a new Paragraph into the document and setting the .Text property to the value of my string text, but the HTML tags won't get formatted.

Thank you.

Hi John,

From the given details, we have found that your requirement is to insert an HTML string with formatting in a Word document using DocIO.

To achieve your requirement, we suggest you to use InsertXHTML or AppendHTML method to insert or add the HTML string into a Word document as per your requirement. Please refer the below code snippet to achieve your requirement,

//Create new Word document.

WordDocument document = new WordDocument();

//Add a section and a paragraph in new Word document.


//Html string to be inserted.

string htmlstring = "<b>Hello</b>";

//Appends the Html string to first paragraph in the document.


//Save the Word document.

FileStream outputStream = new FileStream(@"Output.docx", FileMode.Create);

document.Save(outputStream, FormatType.Docx);

//Close the instance.



Please refer our UG documentation link to know how to insert/add HTML string into a Word document,
