I have a mailmerge form that is currently in  MS Word 2003 format. I am trying to create that functionality on a form with Telerik Reporting. I have tried copying and pasting into a textbox control, that fails to keep any of the formatting. I have also tried in several ways to paste into an HTML Textbox. I have copied the word document directly and also tried saving to html and pasting the html code into the controls value property html editor. In both cases the html generated is creating numerous errors. The form displays correctly initiallly then error message appears and sometimes the html dissapears entirely from the html textbox's value property. Any changes I make in the design view or html view will not persist when I ok out of the designer.

Ay help with this matter will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Michael,

You need to have two things in mind:
  • the HtmlTextBox currently works with text formatting options only. You can see the supported HTML tags and css attributes in the referenced article.
  • the syntax of "our mail merge", which we call embedded expressions. More information about it is available in the Embedded Expressions help article.

Kind regards,
Steve
