Description

Sets a template's data source to an ADO.NET DataSet. A DataSet contains a collection of DataTables. If you set a template's data source to a DataSet, WordWriter will get the first row of the first DataTable in the DataSet.

C#
vb.net

Parameters

ds
An ADO.NET DataSet to use as the template's data source. WordWriter will use the first row of the first DataTable in the DataSet as the data source.

Exceptions

ArgumentNullException
Save will throw this exception if null (C#) or Nothing (VB.NET) is passed to the method.
ArgumentException

Remarks

Each merge field in a WordWriter template must bind to a data source field/value pair. The number of merge fields in the template may not exceed the number of values in the data source. However, the number of values in the data source may be greater than the number of merge fields in the template.

Do not call this method more than once for a single instance of WordTemplate. To set multiple main document data sources, use the following methods:
SetDataSource(Object(), String(), String)
SetDataSource(System.Data.DataSet, String)
SetDataSource(System.Data.DataTable, String)
SetDataSource(System.Data.IDataReader, String)
