Open XML SDK Version 1 released


Version 1 of the Open XML SDK is now available for free download from MSDN. Here are the links:



This is the final “go-live” Version 1, so you can deploy solutions that you build using this version.


Going forward, the next step for the SDK will be the CTP of Version 2 planned for this summer, as covered in the Open XML SDK roadmap. We’d love to have even more developers providing feedback on the CTPs through the Connect program; here are the steps for signing up:



  • Sign up and register on the Microsoft Connect site. (You will need a Windows Live ID, which you can get here if you don’t already have one.)

  • Email your Live ID account name (not password :-)) to osdkhelp@microsoft.com.

  • The folks running the program will then send you an invitation to join with more information.

Open XML Developer Resources


In addition to the links above, don’t forget about all of the great Open XML content on MSDN. These resources can help you get up to speed quickly on Open XML development topics:



And if you’re at TechEd this week in Orlando, come on by the Open XML booth, where we’re giving away brand-new hot-off-the-presses Open XML developer posters, recently updated by Erika. We’re in the building on International Drive with colossal clamshells above both ends …

    Hi,

    Using Open XML Format SDK 1.0 (Web application : C # or VB.Net), I want to build a file .docx from several other files .docx, each one constitutes a part of the final document. For example:

    Header.docx (which contains the Header of the final document – text and images, MailMerging fields…)

    footer.docx (which contains the footer of the final document – text and images, MailMerging fields…)

    Paragraph-1.docx (which contains the paragraph 1 of the final document – text and images, MailMerging fields…)

    some one have an idea?

    Thank you.
