Please welcome another release of our popular product – Aspose.Words for Reporting Services 22.214.171.124. We’ve decided to skip a bunch of maintenance releases such as 2.1.X.X mainly because of a couple of new export formats implemented –
- Hypertext markup language (HTML)
- Plain text (TXT)
We could have added these formats much earlier (since the product is built on the top of Aspose.Words which supports both), but we were not quite sure the users really needed them. But we’ve recently figured out they did! … Continue Reading

This is a brief update for an article I wrote about a year ago on how to create Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 DOC to PDF (and other) document converters using Aspose components.
A Bit of History

Since v4.4.2, we add two new methods to format a cell: Cell.GetStyle method and Cell.SetStyle method.
So now you can use the following two ways to format a cell:
1. use Cell.Style property
cell.Style.Font.IsBold = true;
cell.Style.Font.IsBold = True
2. use Cell.GetStyle and Cell.SetStyle method
Style style = cell.GetStyle(); style.Font.IsBold = true; cell.SetStyle(style);
Dim style as Style = cell.GetStyle() style.Font.IsBold = True cell.SetStyle(style)
You can see that the first approach is easy and straight-forward. So why … Continue Reading
The World Missions Atlas Project (MAP) is an attempt to pick up the challenge Charles H. Fahs issued in 1925, namely to utilize the advances in computer and Internet technologies to establish an accurate base map of the world (at least a 1:1,000,000 projection).
Our mission has been comprehensive: To create maps of languages and people groups for each country of the world while linking appropriate missions related data. The status of each language and people group was … Continue Reading
It struck me from the first day I saw the OOXML specification how “strange” it is. You know borders in MS Word. I mean those text, paragraph and table borders. Complete specfication for a border takes 6 pages in OOXML. I’d say it is a bit too much for such a simple thing as a border, but that’s okay, I guess the more detailed the spec the better.
The problem is that this 6 pages border specification is repeated in the OOXML … Continue Reading

In the Medical Transcription industry, Microsoft Word is the preferred application for transcribing documents. With that in mind, any additional processing of the transcribed documents had to be offloaded to a server machine so as not to interfere with the Medical Transcriptionist (MT) transcribing new documents. With Aspose.Words for .NET, we managed to incorporate real-time document processing of previous jobs and still enabled the MTs to continue using Word to transcribe the next job.
Requirements Scenario… Continue Reading
