In your example, you are missing a closing parenthesis on the line $docx->replaceVariableByText(array('NAME' => 'John Smith'); should be $docx->replaceVariableByText(array('NAME' => 'John Smith')); Otherwise, does replaceVariableByText works in headers? I'm trying to generate a word file that have a variable company name in the headers of some pages. placing $COMPANY_NAME$ in the headers of my template doesn't do the trick.

Hello, Thanks, we're going to fix the mistake. About the method, I recommend you to read the API documentation: http://www.phpdocx.com/api-documentation/templates/replace-variable-text-Word-document As you can see, the target option allows you to set where the replace the placeholders. Regards.
