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.
name
Specifies the data source name for the set of merge fields.

Exceptions

ArgumentNullException

ArgumentException

Remarks

Each merge field in a WordWriter template must bind to a data source field/value pair. The number of merge fields in a set (merge fields that share the same data source name or number) may not exceed the number of values in the data source defined by SetDataSource. However, the number of values in the data source may be greater than the number of merge fields in the set.

This method may be called once for each set of merge fields in the main document.
