For this solution, we will be employing an API that offers the exact functionality that we need. So let’s go ahead and install its client:
pip install cloudmersive-convert-api-client
The function we will need is called merge_document_docx. Below you can see a little block of code for creating its API instance and then the function call from that.
from __future__ import print_functionimport timeimport cloudmersive_convert_api_clientfrom cloudmersive_convert_api_client.rest import ApiExceptionfrom pprint import pprint# Configure API key authorization: Apikeyconfiguration = cloudmersive_convert_api_client.Configuration()configuration.api_key['Apikey'] = 'YOUR_API_KEY'# Uncomment below to setup prefix (e.g. Bearer) for API key, if needed# configuration.api_key_prefix['Apikey'] = 'Bearer'# create an instance of the API classapi_instance = cloudmersive_convert_api_client.MergeDocumentApi(cloudmersive_convert_api_client.ApiClient(configuration))input_file1 = '/path/to/file' # file | First input file to perform the operation on.input_file2 = '/path/to/file' # file | Second input file to perform the operation on (more than 2 can be supplied).try:# Merge Two Word DOCX Togetherapi_response = api_instance.merge_document_docx(input_file1, input_file2)pprint(api_response)except ApiException as e:print("Exception when calling MergeDocumentApi->merge_document_docx: %s\n" % e)
Easy. Our final step is to simply input our files and send the request. Just like that, we have merged Docx documents. No fuss, no muss.
