Spire.Doc: Empty cells when using mail merge

Postby bengtiong » Tue Sep 13, 2011 12:40 am

I am using this demo as basis for a proof of concept: http://www.e-iceblue.com/Knowledgebase/ ... B.NET.html

I made some changes to the codes to allow it to run in ASP.NET MVC3.

However, while I am able to get the generated output, and that the Customer details are correctly mail merged, the cells the Ordered table are all blanks.
It's the same whether i generated the output as Word or PDF.

I am using Windows7, VS2010.

I have managed to rectify this by adding the line:
document.MailMerge.ClearFields = false;

But what is meaning of the line? Can anyone point me to the documentation for this property?


Also,
I find that there is a difference between outputting in Word and PDF.
In Word, the formatting for numeric values are correctly done: i.e. 1.665 is displayed as $1.67 according to the MERGEFORMAT "$#,##0.00"
But in PDF output (using FileFormat.PDF), 1.665 is simply displayed as 1.6650000000

Why so?

Thanks for the fix but am sorry to hear that that PDF fix will need to wait.

When will that be ready?

This issue is really preventing us from using this product because we need to launch an application by end this year.
If we can't be assured that we can use it by these few weeks, we would probably have to source for other products.
