Lightswitch - Office integration pack: Mappingcolumns not match the the table name RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am using office integration pack for lightswitch to create a word document. i run into problem that i do the columnmapping( officecolumn, tablecolumn) but when i excute the code it just generate table in .add(columnmappin..) order, not actually map between exitsing table header and field name I specific in the mapping.

    here is my mapping code.


                Dim mapTable As New List(Of OfficeIntegration.ColumnMapping)
                mapTable.Add(New OfficeIntegration.ColumnMapping("Item", "Product"))
                mapTable.Add(New OfficeIntegration.ColumnMapping("Quantity", "Quantity"))
                mapTable.Add(New OfficeIntegration.ColumnMapping("Price", "Price"))
                mapTable.Add(New OfficeIntegration.ColumnMapping("SalesOrderHeader", "SalesOrderHeader"))
                mapTable.Add(New OfficeIntegration.ColumnMapping("SalesReceipt", "SalesReceipt"))
                mapTable.Add(New OfficeIntegration.ColumnMapping("SalesTaxInvoice", "SalesTaxInvoice"))
                mapTable.Add(New OfficeIntegration.ColumnMapping("VATCode", "VATCode"))
                mapTable.Add(New OfficeIntegration.ColumnMapping("BaseAmount", "BaseAmount"))
                mapTable.Add(New OfficeIntegration.ColumnMapping("VATAmount", "VATAmount"))
                mapTable.Add(New OfficeIntegration.ColumnMapping("TotalAmount", "TotalAmount"))
                Word.Export(Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.Desktop) & "\SalesInvoice.docx", "Lines", 3, False, Me.SalesInvoices.SelectedItem.SalesOrderLines, mapTable)

    In word, i prepared template like following:

    No     Item     Quantity      Price      BaseAmount

    ZM01     50       120         IV001       RE001            < Result i got

    (blank)   ZM01    50           120         6000             < What i expected.

    is this what this extension does normally or i did something wrong?
