The SfRichTextBoxAdv control does not have built-in support for mail merge functionality, but it is possible to perform mail merge using DocIO and then open the merged document in the SfRichTextBoxAdv control.

We have created a sample application to demonstrate this process, which can be downloaded from below.

In the attached sample,

1. Clicking on the "Insert merge field" option opens a new window where you can type the merge field that you want to insert.

As of now, we have defined merge fields and corresponding values. Please insert any of the fields listed below and modify the fields and values as per your requirement.

Merge fields = "EmployeeId", "Name", "Phone", "City"


Merge values = "1001", "Peter", "+122-2222222", "London"

2. The button labeled "Execute Mail Merge" will perform the mail merge operation using DocIO and save the resulting document as a DOCX file. After the merge operation is completed, the mail-merged document will be opened in the SfRichTextBoxAdv control for further editing or viewing.

3. Button “Save Document” is to save the final document in the required format.

Please use the below UG link to know more about the mail merge operation in the DocIO
