Edit DOCX in Python SDK

Use REST API to edit DOCX in Python programmatically

When developers modify a DOCX document with this Python library, what is actually being edited is the Document Object Model (DOM). Thus, almost any changes can be made to the DOCX document represented as DOM. With the provided Python SDK, developers can easily edit a document: modify text, update tables, add images and so on. Just load a DOCX, make the necessary changes programmatically and export the result to the same or any supported save format.

Edit DOCX in Python using REST API

Our Python library gives developers the ability to modify a DOCX document directly by editing its Document Object Model (DOM), which means no additional software needs to be installed.

Edit text in DOCX file using Python

The most popular case to edit a DOCX file is text editing. With the given software solution, you can add, modify or delete text using Python within the document.

Edit table in DOCX file using Python

Another popular DOCX editing option is table editing. Our Python SDK allows you to work with tables and text in table cells.

Python developers can add or remove table and table cells, as well as add, edit and remove text within them.

Add an image to DOCX file using Python

Besides editing text and tables in DOCX, there is another common option: adding images to a document in Python. Python developers can also add an image into a DOCX file using DOM.

Edit DOCX programmatically

Try this powerful Python SDK and evaluate some options in DOCX document editing. Using the following example, load your DOCX document and make some changes: add text, add a table and a table cell with text or insert an image into the DOCX document:

Upload a document you want to modify
Run code
Upload an image you want insert
Select the target format from the list
import asposewordscloud

words_api = WordsApi(client_id = '####-####-####-####-####', 
   client_secret = '##################')

request_document = open('Input.docx', 'rb')
request_paragraph = asposewordscloud.ParagraphInsert(text='Morbi enim nunc faucibus a.')

insert_paragraph_request = asposewordscloud.models.requests.InsertParagraphOnlineRequest(
   document=request_document, paragraph=request_paragraph)
insert_paragraph = words_api.insert_paragraph_online(insert_paragraph_request)

convert_request = asposewordscloud.models.requests.ConvertDocumentRequest(
   document=list(insert_paragraph.document.values())[0], format='docx')
convert = words_api.convert_document(convert_request)
import asposewordscloud

words_api = WordsApi(client_id = '####-####-####-####-####', 
   client_secret = '##################')

request_document = open('Input.docx', 'rb')
request_table = asposewordscloud.TableInsert(columns_count=1, rows_count=2)

insert_table_request = asposewordscloud.models.requests.InsertTableOnlineRequest(
   document=request_document, table=request_table, node_path='')
insert_table = words_api.insert_table_online(insert_table_request)

convert_request = asposewordscloud.models.requests.ConvertDocumentRequest(
   document=list(insert_table.document.values())[0], format='docx')
convert = words_api.convert_document(convert_request)
import asposewordscloud

words_api = WordsApi(client_id = '####-####-####-####-####', 
   client_secret = '##################')

request_document = open('Input1.docx', 'rb')
request_drawing_object = asposewordscloud.DrawingObjectInsert(
   height=0, left=0, top=0, width=0, relative_horizontal_position='Margin', 
      relative_vertical_position='Margin', wrap_type='Inline')
request_image_file = open('Input2.docx', 'rb')

insert_drawing_object_request = 
   asposewordscloud.models.requests.InsertDrawingObjectOnlineRequest(
      document=request_document, drawing_object=request_drawing_object, 
         image_file=request_image_file, node_path='sections/0')
insert_drawing_object = words_api.insert_drawing_object_online(insert_drawing_object_request)

convert_request = asposewordscloud.models.requests.ConvertDocumentRequest(
   document=list(insert_drawing_object.document.values())[0], format='docx')
convert = words_api.convert_document(convert_request)
