OfficeUtils provides advanced export capabilities to Excel and Word documents (available for .NET and Java stacks). It allows to manipulate and generate a document based on a template included in the Resources folder. The document content is manipulated using a set of server actions available in OfficeUtils Service module, called helpers.

Built using NPOI 2.4.1 (.NET stack) and Apache POI 3.11 (Java stack).

Word export features list:

  • Template based export.
  • Replace text placeholders on the template with text and pictures.
  • Populate template tables with data.
