Fieldname

Use the Fieldname modifier to insert database column headings in a document. For example, in place of the merge field
«RecordSet.#2(fieldname)», WordWriter will insert the name of the second column in the RecordSet.

Uppercase

If a merge field includes the Uppercase modifier, all text values imported to the merge field will be displayed in uppercase. If a merge field includes both the Uppercase and Lowercase modifiers, the last will be applied.

Lowercase

If a merge field includes the Lowercase modifier, all text values imported to the merge field will be displayed in lowercase. If a merge field includes both the Uppercase and Lowercase modifiers, the last will be applied.

Optional

By default, if a merge field's data source name or column name is not bound to a data source in code, an error will occur. If a merge field contains the Optional modifier, and the merge field is not bound by name to a data source, WordWriter will discard the merge field in the generated document and will not throw an error.
This modifier makes both a merge field's data source and column optional. For example, for this merge field:
«Orders.OrderID(Optional)»
If either the data source "Orders," or the column "OrderId" does not exist, the merge field will be removed without error.

Note

If a merge field contains a data source number and/or field number (for example «#7.#3») and is not bound to a data source in script, the merge field will be removed without error whether the "Optional" modifier is present or not.

Image

If the image modifier is present and the column of data for the merge field is either of type byte array (byte[]) or SQL BLOB, then the image will be rendered. The image modifier can take optional parameters to format the size of the image (e.g. <<Product.Image(image(1,600,600))>>. For more see Inserting an Image.

Document(format)

The document modifier can be used to insert certain types of documents into docx files where format is either rtf, html, or docx. This will insert the formatted document into the docx output. For more see Inserting an Embedded Document.

HtmlSnippetThis document htmlSnippet modifier can be used to insert HTML snippets into the docx. The htmlSnippet modifier accepts a string of well formatted html snippet and inserts it into the document. To insert full HTML documents from byte arrays or through URI references use the Document modifier.
