Merging document "fragments" into a single Word doc

Greetings,

I’m considering this service and am wondering about the Word doc merge capabilities. Is it possible to store “fragments” of pages (think legal provisions/clauses) as separate Word docs and then generate a final document by merging various fragments?

If each merged doc starts as a new page, then that won’t work. Anyone doing anything similar? Is there a way to achieve this?

EDIT

One more question… What is Aspose? Is that related to groupdocs somehow? I’m a bit confused, as I think I wound up here by starting on the Aspose website. :confused:

I am afraid currently GroupDocs.Merger Cloud API does not support to append the source document to the end of last page of destination document but start for new page. We have logged a feature request MERGERCLOUD-64 for your requirement. We will update you as soon as it is resolved.

Please note Aspose APIs are file format specific APIs. Whereas GroupDocs APIs are based on a specific feature of Aspose APIs. Like we have clubbed document merge feature of all the Aspose APIs in GroupDocs.Merger API

Thanks! In the interim, I guess I’ll see if leveraging mail merge capabilities is a possibility.

If I’ll be working exclusively with MS Word docs, then it seems like Aspose might be better. I’ll have to do a bit more research. Thanks for the info.

If you are open to using Aspose.Words API then you can check the following documentation for sample code and details for your requirement.

Thanks again, @tilal.ahmad. Is it possible using the aspose.cloud REST API? I don’t see that capability at…

@shot

Yes, you can achieve this in Aspose.Words Cloud API using following APIs.

PUT ​/words​/{name}​/sections​/{sectionIndex}​/pageSetup Updates the page setup of a section in the document

PUT ​/words​/{name}​/appendDocument Appends documents to the original document
