Hi,



What is the best way to search and replace more different strings in the same document?



So all #string1# should be replaced by #newstring1#, all #string2# by #newstring2#, and so on.



Should I do a search and replace per string and create a new document.



Next open the new document and then do the second search and replace? And repeat this as many times as necessary?



Or could I do this without generating each time new documents? I hope so ...



 



Regards,



Robert

Would it not be easier to use the replace variable?



$docx = new CreateDocx();

$docx->addTemplate('Template.docx');



for($index=1; $index <$numberofstrings;$index++){



          $docx->addTemplateVariable('string'.$index,'string'.$index);



}



$docx->createDocx('Files/Report');

Hello,



You can use addTemplateVariable or replaceTemplateVariableByHTML to change placeholders in templates.
