Microsoft Word merge fields do not refresh when launched from a C#.net application
Posted on 2008-10-05
I have a Microsoft word document with some merge fields from an Access database.
When I launch the word document from my C#.net application using:
The Word document opens but the fields shows the information from an old merged document.
The fields in the word document does not show the data from the Access database.
The table I am pulling the data from only has one row of record at a time.
However if I manualy open the document by clicking on it by going to C:\Ama\Templates\NILM.doc
The document opens populating the merge fields with the most current data from the access database.
It appears that when I launch the document from my application it's openining a document stored in memory
