Simple Example for editing Word

Jan 3, 2015 at 10:00 AM

I'm new to NetOffice, and I wish to know if is possible to simply open an exisiting Word.doc document, find some specific text within MS Word "TextFormFields", and just replace their content, and save the document?

I couldn't see any in the tutorials, etc...

Thanks for your help and time.

You find a lot of examples in the word example folder and online:

this topic shows you more about replace form fields:
(dont worry about ms-interop, the syntax in NetOffice is always pretty the same)

Hi Sebastian,

While the method that you explain on those samples does provide the means to find the field and replace it for a text.

See my code below:

switch (field.Name)


case "ProjectName01":

field.Range.Text = NewValue[0];


This approach replaces the entire field all together for the text. I wish to simply find the field, and replace the content only.

Like the following sample:

Word field.Name = Client01
Word field.Text = Client Name

After the code runs, should be:

Word field.Name = Client01
Word field.Text = John Matthews

I cannot seem to find the property or attribute of the field, to do the above.

Any ideas?
