System::SharedPtr dstDoc = System::MakeObject(dir + u"destination.doc");

System::SharedPtr srcDoc = System::MakeObject(dir + u"source.doc");


// set the appended file to start on a new page.


// append the source file using the original styles found in the source file.

dstDoc->AppendDocument(srcDoc, Aspose::Words::ImportFormatMode::KeepSourceFormatting);

// save result

dstDoc->Save(dir + u"output.doc);

Easy to Use Security Options

Aspose.Words for C++ offers the facility to protect & un-protect documents with single line of code. You may set the protection in a way that the user can make only limited changes, such as adding annotations, making revisions or completing a form.

Protect/un-protect files - C++

// load document to be processed

System::SharedPtr wrdoc = System::MakeObject(dir + u"template.doc");

// protect file 

wrdoc->Protect(Aspose::Words::ProtectionType::AllowOnlyFormFields, u"password");

// un-protect file
