How to Export data from Excel sheet to a Word Document for Mail Merge?


Please refer the below steps to work on this:

* IWorkbook Interface is used to open the Excel file.

* Worksheet having the data (basically a table)is assigned to IWorksheet object

* A DataTable is created to hold the data imported from SpreadSheet.

* ExportDataTable method is used to get the data from the Worksheet and assigned to DataTable

* ExportDataTable method has two arguments. One for specifying the range of the data in the worksheet and another for specifying the column names.

* The DataTable is executed using the WordDocument object

Please refer the below code snippet which illustrates this:


ExcelEngine excelEngine = new ExcelEngine();

IApplication application = excelEngine.Excel;

IWorkbook workbook = application.Workbooks.Open("NorthwindDataTemplate.xls");

IWorksheet sheet = workbook.Worksheets[0];

DataTable customersTable = new DataTable();

//Assigning DataTable with Excel data

customersTable = sheet.ExportDataTable(sheet.UsedRange, ExcelExportDataTableOptions.ColumnNames);

customersTable.TableName = "Customers";

WordDocument doc = new WordDocument("CustomersReport.doc");








Dim excelEngine As New ExcelEngine()

Dim application As IApplication = excelEngine.Excel

Dim workbook As IWorkbook = application.Workbooks.Open("NorthwindDataTemplate.xls")

Dim sheet As IWorksheet = workbook.Worksheets(0)

Dim customersTable As New DataTable()

'Assigning DataTable with Excel data

customersTable = sheet.ExportDataTable(sheet.UsedRange, ExcelExportDataTableOptions.ColumnNames)

customersTable.TableName = "Customers"

Dim doc As New WordDocument("CustomersReport.doc")
