A WordWriter template is a Microsoft Word file that contains merge fields. A merge field displays a data source field (for example, a database column name). A merge field is created in Microsoft Word and bound in code to a data source. The data source may be an array, a DataSet, a DataTable, or a DataReader. When you run the code, WordWriter populates the merge fields with data source values.
A template may contain multiple sets of merge fields. Each set of fields binds to a single data source. Implicitly or explicitly, a merge field always specifies both a data source and a column. For example, in the merge field*«Products.ProductID», "Products" is the data source and "ProductID" is the column. The merge field«ProductID»* refers to the "ProductId" column from the first data source defined in the WordWriter code.
