Hi,

you can use template Class

as this example

$PHPWord = new \PhpOffice\PhpWord\PhpWord();
$document = $PHPWord->loadTemplate("example.docx");

after open you can change values inside doc (but every item to change in the original docs must to be ${ITEM_TO_CHANGE}) with this command:

$document->setValue("ITEM_TO_CHANGE","New value");

to Save new File :

$document->saveAs("newfile.docx");

i hope was helpful
