Thanks. Based on this help, I am posting my solution for anyone else who may encounter the same Temp directory access rights issue.

A modified List.php example is shown below. I initially had problems with this solution because I only used the relative template path and not the relative path to the actual template [u]document file[/u] in the constructor.

My full solution also involved creating a docx and Temp directory under the examples directory:


The new Word document is created in the docx directory. Note that I later moved the Temp directory to a better location for our server. Also note that your custom code files will likely have different relative paths than the example projects.

$docx = new CreateDocx("../../templates/phpdocxBaseTemplate.docx", "../Temp");

$valuesList = array(
'Line 1',
'Line 2',
'Line 3',
'Line 4',
'Line 5'

$paramsList = array(
'val' => 1

$docx->addList($valuesList, $paramsList);
