Hello,

How did you converted DOC to DOCX?. Could you attach your DOCX to test it?

Regards.

Hello,

I've been checking your DOC after exporting it to DOCX. The problem is that you're merging more than one placeholder and
string in the same cell. As using this method

$docx->addTemplateVariable('P_GName', 'image.png', 'image')

the image is replaced with an altchunk tag, Word is unable to read w:r tags that has an altchunk tag and more content.
So the solution it's to set a cell for each placeholder or use replaceTemplateVariableByHTML method that don't use altchunk but other WordML tags.

Regards.

Hi,

I have tried merge image using,

$Logo="./UserLogos/MRM Banner-crop.gif";
$logo_HTML="<img src='".$Logo."'>";
$docx->replaceTemplateVariableByHTML('logo','inline',$logo_HTML);
and
$docx->replaceTemplateVariableByHTML('logo','block',$logo_HTML);

But the template variable is replace by nothing.

I'm sure the HTML is correct, because When I put a die($logo_HTML); I can see that image in the browser.
But in the resulting document, the template variable is replaced with blank.

Another thing is that, when we put everything in a blank new document save it as .docx. The image works fine.
No idea what's going on.

Hello,

The image must be readable by file_get_contents, so I recommend you to set an URL as image source.

Regards.
