)

Parameters

Name Type Description
documentServer IRichEditDocumentServer

An object implementing the IRichEditDocumentServer interface, such as the RichEditDocumentServer or the RichEditControl instance.

Remarks

Use this method to process the resulting document in the RichEditDocumentServer. For example, if merge fields are nested within DOCVARIABLE fields, you can call the FieldCollection.Update method to calculate filed content by handling the RichEditControl.CalculateDocumentVariable event.

NOTE

A newer and more convenient approach to Master-Detail Mail Merge is provided by the SnapControl and SnapDocumentServer.

The RichEditControl.CalculateDocumentVariable event is raised for the object with the IRichEditDocumentServer interface, passed as an argument to the MailMerge method.
