DocumentEditor comes with built-in, powerful mail merge capabilities to merge templates with data from various data sources. The document editor is used as a template designer to create MS Word compatible templates that can be merged using the DS Server reporting engine DocumentProcessing.

DS Server combines the easiness of a document processor and the power of a reporting engine. Use DS Server to give your users the power to create pixel-perfect documents and reports using their MS Word editor skills.

The Reporting ribbon tab can be initialized with a data source (JSON or XML), so that the merge field merge blocks and drop-downs are filled automatically with available fields that can be added to a document. A sample XML data source is pre-loaded in the view code.

The demo shows how to create a template based on a sample data source and how to preview the results in the editor.

  1. Click Preview from the Finish ribbon group in the Reporting ribbon tab.

  2. Confirm the opened dialog Limit Preview Data with OK.

  3. See the merge preview results and close the preview using the Close Preview button.
