I want to achieve one thing.

I want to make one file that contains several pages, every page should look the same as the others except for some bits of info. I have a template that I try to import and make a foreach loop and create one file, something like

[code]
require_once 'CreateDocx.inc';
$docx = new CreateDocx();
$docx->addTemplate('pink.docx');
foreach ($allthings as $allthing)
{


$docx->addHeader($header, $paramsHeader);

$docx->addTemplateVariable('INFO', $allthing->info);
$docx->addTemplateVariable('INFO"', $allthing->info2);
$docx->addTemplateVariable('CONCATINFO3AND4', $allthing->info3 . ' ' . $allthing->info4);

$docx->addBreak('page');
}
$filename = $allthing->info;
$docx->createDocx($filename);[/code]

but only one page is created...ideas?

Hello,

There's an example of that in intermediate/Multidocument.inc file. It's for new documents but it's the same for templates.

Regards.

Hi again!

I don't know if you missunderstod me or the other way around...

I want to make just ONE file.

I want to make some kind of loop where the template is used over and over again and a new template variable is new for each run...

Hope for this to solve!

Thanx in advance!

Hello,

UPDATE: BulkProcessing included in Premium licenses is the best approach for this task.


We undertstood you. You need to create as many documents as needed and then merge them to a single document. You can't do it with just one method.

Regards.
