The document is generated by a template.The PHP script basically replaces a large number of variables - either using the replaceVariableByText () function or the replaceVariableByExternalFile () function - and eventually deletes some blocks.
I would like to avoid having to put the table of contents at the bottom of the document, as I currently did:

$ docx-> addTableContents (array ('autoUpdate' => true), $ legend);
$ Docx-> clearBlocks ();
$ docx-> createDocx ('./ test / offer'. $ variables ['VAR_OFFER_NUMBER']);

For me it would be ideal to insert the table of contents on the second page, but taking the first from the template.I hope I was able to explain: I would not, if possible, have to do the first page "line by line" from PHP.

Since phpdocx 8, addTableContents can be used as WordFragments.

To accomplish what you need, we recommend you using phpdocx 8 and DOCXPath. DOCXPath is available in Advanced and Premium licenses.

What license and version of phpdocx are you using?.

I have been commissioned by my company to test phpdocx to see if it fits our needs and determine which version to buy: I am currently using the trial.

Best regards.
