Working with Fields

[ ]

Fields in a document are like placeholders where useful data can be inserted. For example, a field can be a page reference, formula, or a mail merge field.

In a document created or edited with Aspose.Words, as in a Microsoft Word document, a field consists of a field code and a field result. The field code is an instruction about how the field result needs to be updated or calculated. An application that processes a document and encounters a field should interpret the instructions contained in the field code and update the field result with a new value.

In Aspose.Words, fields are represented by various classes, most of whose names begin with “Field”. Articles in this documentation section explain how to use Aspose.Words classes to manipulate document fields programmatically.
