my name is Alessandro and i’m a brandnew SugarCRM user.
i was wondering if is that possible to create (from a template) a *.doc document instead the .pdf from the module PDF?
This is crucial for me and for my team.
it’s possible with https://github.com/PHPOffice
I have do that… you can search my post about that for sample.
Excel, Word… all it’s ok… but for word, carriage return I have not find solution… embed image…
But what SuitCRM teams must do it’s implement this in core.
it is feasible to develop this, if you are a developer. Contrary to popular belief, .docx is an open format, it is XML inside a ZIP, and the specs are published on the Internet. The same goes for all Office formats >= 2007. So you basically write out the Word doc in text with some tags, zip it, name it .docx and you’re done. There are also libraries to facilitate this in many languages.
