dotx (Word Template) file manipulation using ASP.Net

I have a dotx file which contains placeholders to be replaced with DB values including Image place-holders.

Should I convert dotx file to docx first and then replace the placeholders in my .net application?

Or there is some other way to do same.

Please guide.

Thank you!

For my current scenerio, I will be using Aspose library to do doc/docx/dotx manipulation and then finally converting the result document to pdf after mail merge. I have downloaded the free 30-days trial version and it seems to solve all my issues.

I would suggest anyone going to use Aspose to have the trial version first and then making the decision.
