Introduction

 In this article you will learn that how to populate mail merge or mustache template with data in various languages. You can download an SDK of your favorite language and start programming in a smartest way. The SDKs are available in Java, .NET, PHP, Ruby, Python, NodeJS, Swift, Android and Go languages. This API represents a controller for executing the mail merge. Description of some important parameters of the API is given below:

Parameter NameDescription
withRegions

Merge with regions or not. False by default.

Flag 'withRegions' can be omitted, in this case, a simple mail merge will be executed. If the flag is present and value is 'true' - mail merge with regions will be executed.

mailMergeDataFileIf mailMergeDataFile parameter exists, the data is taken from the server path (the parameter must contain the full path to the server file). However, if the mailMergeDataFile parameter is omitted, the data is expected in the requested content.
cleanup

If the cleanup parameter is omitted, cleanup options will be None.

 
useWholeParagraphAsRegionSpecifies a value indicating whether paragraphs with TableStart or TableEnd field should be fully included in the mail merge region or particular range between TableStart and TableEnd fields. The default value is true.
  

The cleanup options parameter can contain a list of values from below, separated by ",":

ValueDescription
NoneWithout any cleanup.
EmptyParagraphsSpecifies whether paragraphs that contained mail merge fields with no data should be removed from the document.
UnusedRegionsSpecifies whether unused mail merge regions should be removed from the document.
UnusedFieldsSpecifies whether unused merge fields should be removed from the document.
ContainingFieldsSpecifies whether fields that contain merge fields (for example, IFs) should be removed from the document if the nested merge fields are removed.
RemoveTitleRowRemoves title row of the table if this table doesn't contain any rows except title row. It does not remove title rows in nested tables.
RemoveTitleRowInInnerTablesEnable "RemoveTitleRow " for nested tables.
RemoveStaticFieldsSpecifies whether static fields should be removed from the document. Static fields are fields, which results remain the same upon any document change. Fields, which do not store their results in a document and are calculated on the fly (like Aspose.Words.Fields.FieldType.FieldListNum, Aspose.Words.Fields.FieldType.FieldSymbol, etc.) are not considered to be static.

SDKs

Using an SDK (API client) is the quickest way for a developer to speed up the development. An SDK takes care of a lot of low-level details of making requests and handling responses and lets you focus on writing code specific to your particular project. Check out our GitHub repository for a complete list of Aspose.Words SDKs along with working examples, to get you started in no time. Please check Available SDKs article to learn how to add an SDK to your project.
