Hi Ole Oscar Johnsen, 

Would you be willing to share the solution you have written so far?   What if we built a common project on github and started to develop a solution that we could all share?

It would be nice to implement this feature.

Hi,

There is no an event which allows you to change the values obtained from the mail merge operation. The approach you are currently using is correct. 

In case you need to execute the mail merge using more complex objects, this is related to the feature request that the current item describes. 

Hope this information is helpful.

Regards,
Tanya

At the moment we have created a custom solution where we are using the \v character in the string to indicate to insert a vertical break in the table cell.
That's the addition we have done. Perhaps you have a better solution to do this like for example an event where we can adjust the value to insert what ever we want or something else.

Here is a snippet of code that we have done.

                        string[] stringArrray = ((string)value).Split('\v');
                        bool first = true;
                        foreach (string str in stringArrray)
                        {
                            if (first == false)
                            {
                                Break br = new Break(mailMergeDocument);
                                paragraph.Inlines.Insert(num, br);
                                num++;
                            }

                            Run run = new Run(mailMergeDocument);
                            run.Properties.CopyPropertiesFrom(characterFormattingFromFirstRunInRange);
                            run.Text = str;
                            paragraph.Inlines.Insert(num, run);
                            first = false;
                            num++;
                        }

Hi,

Thank you for your suggestion.

We would like to ask you several questions to ensure that we completely understand your needs. Could you please explain in more details what do you expect from such a functionality? What is the end goal you would like to achieve with this event and what are your expectations when the event is thrown? Do you mean that you would like to change the result of the mail merge operation in this event?

Any additional information you think would be relevant is welcome.

Regards,
Tanya

It would also been nice if if we can attach an event to adjust the document/value when writing values.
At the moment we have created our own mail merge using you library, and to support table merge we insert an line break to every element to support a very simple dynamic table merge.
