Hi,
I have a word document template (let's say in C drive).
The document has few merge fields let's say <<FirstName>> and <<LastName>>.
Now, I need to create a dll/vb.net code where in when I run the application must replace the fields <<FirstName>> and <<LastName>> with the values passed and ask me to open/Close/save the document.
I am looking at similar feature to merge, replace text.
However, my original template must still be the same.

Regards,

As an alternative you can try this code which uses the bookmarks
On a button click event write this code.

 Dim word_server As Word.Application
        Dim thisDoc As Word.Document
        word_server = New Word.Application()

        word_server.Documents.Open("C:\Original.doc")
        thisDoc = word_server.ActiveDocument
        word_server.Selection.GoTo( _
       What:=Word.WdGoToItem.wdGoToBookmark, _
       Name:="Name")
        word_server.Selection.TypeText( _
            Text:="some value")
        word_server.Visible = True

How about importing the namespaces
and hopefully Name:="Name" where the later "Name" is the BookMark
How about saving the document?
