  • Do I need to use the TableStart: Container and TableEnd:Container when I use SimpleMerge? 
    When using SimpleMerge, you don’t need to use the TableStart:Container and TableEnd:Container.  
  • Is it possible to show all the data in a list on the output document with SimpleMerge? 
    Yes, but you will have to manually configure the exact amount of merge fields as the amount of records in the list. We recommend using AdvancedMerge, as you can work with tables and rows. 
  • Can I use any Word template with DocumentGenerationForMendix ? 
    Yes, but make sure the merge fields in the Word template correspond with the fields in your TemplateType.

    With an active license the watermark will disappear. Please contact info@appronto.nl for a license. 
  • Which java action should be used when data is needed from different entities? 
    This depends on the preferred outcome. If the output only needs to display single records, SimpleMerge will do the job. If the output should display all records from a list, then the AdvancedMerge should be used. 
  • When a mergefield is empty, the line in the document is still visible. Is it possible to not show it when empty? 
    The IF ELSE statement can determine whether a mergefield is shown and can also determine if a line needs to be added. See also If Else Mergefield
