I'm using a variable $date$ in my docx. When using $docx->replaceVariableByText(array('date'=>'01.01.2014'), $options); in my script, the content is not available in the document. The $date$ variable is replaced, but the value doesn't appear. The result is the same as if the value was empty. If I rename the variable e.g. to $dat$, everything works fine. So the var name "date" seems to make the problem.

Hello, We have done some tests with this code: ----------------------------- require_once '../classes/'; $docx = new CreateDocxFromTemplate('TemplateSimpleText.docx'); $first = 'PHPDocX'; $multiline = 'This is the first line.\nThis is the second line of text.'; $variables = array('date' => '01.01.2014'); $options = array('parseLineBreaks' =>true); $docx->replaceVariableByText($variables, $options); $docx->createDocx('example_replaceVariableByText_1'); ----------------------------- And the document is generated without issues. So there must be an error in your template or code; we recommend you to check both. Regards.
