hi,

Do we have the ability to merge Tables within Tables with any mailmerge.execute options? somthing like this structure:

tablestart_t1
mergefield:m1t1
tablestart:t2
mergefield: m1t2
tableend:t2
mergefield:m2t1
tableend:t1

this would make it a lot easier for me.

thanks

Hi,

Thank you for your interest in Essential DocIO.

Currently it is not possible to do Mailmerge with nested tables. Could you pelase explain why you need this functionality? Usually,

1. Mailmerge.Execute() method will extract all the records from the given data source and merge it to the destination document.

2. Mailmerge.ExecuteGroup() method does the Mailmerge operation with portion of a document and its content will grow dynamically.

Did you try to get all the records from table and get the single master document using Mailmerge? If so, can you please refer the following sample and let me know if it helps.

Sample :
Sales_Invoice.zip


Thanks,
Prabhu.

hi,

My problem is, to generate documents wich contain tables with several nested tables inside.Those can contain again serveral nested Tables and so on ..

Almoast like 1-1000 Pages(table 1) got 1-10 Objects(table2) with several customers(table3) wich have several Proberties(table4).

But this is at this moment not my main Problem. I know how to do a workaround, now. It would have been easier ;)

My (today occred) main problems are some strange things wich happen when I only read and write a Document with differerent templates.

#1 Textframes occur as big black Elements in the PDF.

#2 Pictures where not displayed in DOC.IO,

#3 "bounds" exeption (pdf) when reading a 8-pages xml document stream. and:

#4 Syncfusion.DLS.DLSException: Cells count in sourceDescriptor 8 greate than destanation 1
Guess this is one about tables in tables?

The Results are in the attachment.

Hi Pinkau,

I have created a sample which does the Mailmerge operation with nested table document. We do not support this functionality. However I have given a workaround sample for this functionality. Could you please refer the following sample? I hope this will help you to proceed further in your project.

Hi Pinkau,

Thank you for providing a document to us. I was able to see the issue. It happens due to the document contents had an Euro [ € ] symbol inside the table. If we remove that symbol from document then its working fine. I have made the changes from given document and I have created a sample that open a template document and resave it by Essential DocIO and convert it to PDF by Essential PDF. Please take a look for the attached sample.

However I have already noticed that issue and I have files a bug report with our development team. You can tack the live status of this issue here,
