I'm using the trial version of phpdocx and it goes like this :

$docx->replaceVariableByText($variables_header, ['target' => "header"]);
$docx->createDocxAndDownload('temp/Business Plan');

All is fine. When I open it in Libre Office, it shows up fine.

But when I open it in Microsoft Word, I get this error :

The next is if you click "Details" on the initial Word Error Screen (you'll see the new text at the bottom of the image) :
The final one is the new error message that appears when you click "OK" on the initial Word Error Screen :

"We're sorry. We can't open [document name] because we found a problem with its contents." and "Word found unreadable content in [document name]. Do you want to recover the contents of this document? If you trust the source of this document, click Yes."

Is there any way to resolve this ? Everything is fine in the docx when I click on OK. But I need to get rid off this error.

That's a generic error that Word shows when some content added is wrong. The source vary: non UTF8 characters, a non valid image...

After you purchase a license please send us the DOCX and we'll check it to give a solution. A trial package can't be debugged.
