Hi,

I am trying to write to a word document from ASP.net c# application. The idea is to copy a word template into a new document and then insert values of textboxes and gridviews into th document. I am trying to do this with Filestream but the problem is I am unable to get carriage return in word document after doing various things and trying for last 2 days.,
Please see the code below and advise if possible,

Thanks
Tan


protected void function2()
        {
            String strvalue, Srefno;
            Object td;

            StringWriter temp = new StringWriter();
            temp.Write(TextBox1.Text);

            td = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
            System.IO.File.Copy(Server.MapPath("~/profile_images/test2.rtf"), @"\\" + QCostGlobals.CustomerQuoteFilePath);

            String strFilePath = @"\\" + QCostGlobals.CustomerQuoteFilePath;


            FileStream fs2 = new FileStream(strFilePath, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read);


            StreamReader d = new StreamReader(fs2);

            d.BaseStream.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin);

            string swrtarget = d.ReadToEnd(); //Read the file from Start to End in one go.

            d.Close(); // Close the Stream Reader


            //Set the path to open file2.rtf

            strFilePath = @"\\" + QCostGlobals.CustomerQuoteFilePath;

            //Open file file2.rtf in Read Write Mode

            FileStream fs1 = new FileStream(strFilePath, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.ReadWrite);

            StreamWriter s = new StreamWriter(fs1); //Declare a Stream Writer.


            //String str = Regex.Replace(swrtarget, "##Address##", newString, RegexOptions.Multiline);

            string str = swrtarget;
            str = str.Replace("<<Address>>", "^");
          
            foreach (string str3 in str.Split('^'))
            {
                s.WriteLine(str3);

                foreach (string str4 in TextBox1.Text.Split('\n'))
                {
                    s.WriteLine(str4 + ((char)13));
                    

                }
                //s.WriteLine('\n');
            }
           // sw.Close();

            s.Flush();

            //Close the stream writer.

            s.Close();

            fs1.Close();

            fs2.Close();

        }

I have already tried this as well. Apparently \r\n does not render carriage return on word. therefore I have used the above mothod of splitting and writing using writeline. But that doesnt work either!

ok, since you are working with a RTF file you can add the RTF indicador of a new line like this,

//RTF new line indicator
s.WriteLine(str4 + "\\par");

I have tested and works, please try it
