Word Automation - InsertBreak - New Page

1 New Member
I am trying to pull in some data from a database (Access) and merge the data to a Word document (basically mail merge). I got the data to fill in the bookmarks in the document but only the first selection from the checklistbox is being pulled in. Also I need the information thats pulled in to be on a separate page in the same document.

Hope that makes sense. Anyway here is my code.

Here is my code: (VB.Net)

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  2.         Dim wdApp As New Word.Application
  3.         wdApp.Visible = True
  4.         wdApp.Documents.Open("d:\testing.doc")
  7.         Try
  9.             ' Fill in the data.
  10.             Dim dt As DataTable
  12.             dt = infoData.GetData()
  14.             Dim testchk As New CheckBox
  16.             Dim checked_items As CheckedListBox.CheckedItemCollection = cboMailMerge.CheckedItems
  18.             For Each item As Object In checked_items
  20.                 Dim str As String = item.ToString()
  22.                 For i As Integer = 0 To dt.Rows.Count - 1
  24.                     If dt.Rows(i)("orgName").ToString() = str Then
  26.                         Dim rng1 As Word.Range = wdApp.ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("ContactName").Range()
  27.                         Dim rng2 As Word.Range = wdApp.ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("CompanyName").Range()
  28.                         Dim rng3 As Word.Range = wdApp.ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("StreetAddress").Range()
  29.                         Dim rng4 As Word.Range = wdApp.ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("City").Range()
  30.                         Dim rng5 As Word.Range = wdApp.ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("State").Range()
  31.                         Dim rng6 As Word.Range = wdApp.ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("ZipCode").Range()
  32.                         Dim rng7 As Word.Range = wdApp.ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("EventName").Range()
  33.                         Dim rng8 As Word.Range = wdApp.ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("ContactName1").Range()
  36.                         rng1.Text = dt.Rows(i)("orgFname").ToString() & " " & dt.Rows(i)("orgLname").ToString()
  37.                         rng2.Text = dt.Rows(i)("orgName").ToString()
  38.                         rng3.Text = dt.Rows(i)("orgSaddress").ToString()
  39.                         rng4.Text = dt.Rows(i)("orgCity").ToString()
  40.                         rng5.Text = dt.Rows(i)("orgState").ToString()
  41.                         rng6.Text = dt.Rows(i)("orgZipcode").ToString()
  42.                         rng7.Text = dt.Rows(i)("ReqEvent").ToString()
  43.                         rng8.Text = dt.Rows(i)("orgFname").ToString() & " " & dt.Rows(i)("orgLname").ToString()
  47.                         wdApp.ActiveDocument.Bookmarks.Add(rng1.Text, DirectCast(rng1, Word.Range))
  48.                         wdApp.ActiveDocument.Bookmarks.Add(rng2.Text, DirectCast(rng2, Word.Range))
  49.                         wdApp.ActiveDocument.Bookmarks.Add(rng3.Text, DirectCast(rng3, Word.Range))
  50.                         wdApp.ActiveDocument.Bookmarks.Add(rng4.Text, DirectCast(rng4, Word.Range))

  52.                         wdApp.ActiveDocument.Bookmarks.Add(rng6.Text, DirectCast(rng6, Word.Range))
  53.                         wdApp.ActiveDocument.Bookmarks.Add(rng7.Text, DirectCast(rng7, Word.Range))
  54.                         wdApp.ActiveDocument.Bookmarks.Add(rng8.Text, DirectCast(rng8, Word.Range))
  59.                     End If
  62.                 Next i
  63.                 wdApp.ActiveDocument.Range.InsertBreak()
  64.             Next item
  67.         Catch ex As Exception
  69.         End Try
