Hi,
i have a template ( t.docx ) that contains a table. I have also an array with n elements, I would create a page in a docx for each element in my array and each page must contains the table. I'm able to insert the template data in t.docx but when I create the document I obtain only page. Can someone write me an example code please?

Thanks

Alberto

If you wish to create n tables (where n is not yet define) the simplest solution is first generate a docx with n pages with n variable names (you may do that from a single variable replacing it n times and formatting it to have a page break after it) and later on do the substitution of the dynamically generated variables.

I wouldn't use a template variable, i would add immediately a table and a page break...

i have a code like this:

foreach($elements as $e ) {

if (!is_null($e)) {

$valuesTable = array(
array(
"1",
"2",
),
array(
$e->1(),
$e->2()
),
array(
"3",
"4"
),
array(
$e->3(),
$e->4()
),
array(
"5",
"6"
),
array(
$e->5(),
$e->6()
)
);


$docx->addTemplate('templates/element/high.docx');
$docx->addTemplateVariable('1', $e->1());
$docx->addTemplateVariable('2', $e->2());


$docx->addBreak('page');
$i++;
}
}

Why i have only one table in one page? $elements has more elements.
