Hi @Immamuel George​ ,

 

Working with MS Words, its best if you create a template with placeholder that you can replace with text.

Say you are sending a certificate, you will only want to change the Name, Date etc.

 

You can Copy the File using the File: Copy Action and then the MS Word: Replace Text Action(since you know the placeholders).

It isn't necessary to open the MS Word File to work with it, and doing so will only make it cumbersome.

If you want to add tables into it, then I'd recommend creating an HTML, editing that, and then converting it to PDF.

If you want to convert HTML to MS Word, I bet there is a VBScript for that.

 

Kind Regards,
