Allowing Users to create a document template? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am totally new to the Open XML Format SDK world.  I have been trying to search for answers but with no luck. 

    Currently, I have a requirement that users will create a template in word document where they are allowed to specify their own content with some specially marked fields.  For example a template for an email:


    Dear {First_Name},

    The service request you filed has been received on {Request_Date}. ....


    The application should be able to replace the specially marked fields with the corresponding data retrieved from the database.

    I am wondering whether I can use the Open XML Format SDK to perform this task easily?  Would it be possible for the users to modify the word documents on the web page (ASP.NET) itself without the need to download them?  Are there any existing APIs or plugin available?

    Thank you!
