1. Yes,  this is the wrong thread.
 
2. Use the forum search for "low memory" and see what you find,  would be a better approach, probably.
 
3. You do not need to open a new ecco file.     You need to diagnose your memory issue.   See of you can find a helpful thread on that,  search for "memory reporter".    If you'll download and use the (FREE) memory reporter,  it will likely tell you where your issue is.  
 
4. If you opened a new file and you can't use it..  most likely culprit is your alarms.   Try deleting your alarm file  (it rebuilds automatically when relevant .eco file is opened).   You can find it with .cfx finder tool (FREE).  in eccotools.com forum.
 
 
hope helpful...

Apologies if this is the wrong forum.  I have used Ecco in a very basic way for many years but am once again getting a message 'Unable to complete command. Low memory condition detected'.  Last time it happened I just opened a new file - annoying to have to intermittently refer to an earlier file but at least I could continue using Ecco.  However, when I tried to do this this time I'm allowed to make a few entries and then the same message appears.  I would appreciate any help.

What do you mean you chose the only template ?
 
 
Which windows version are you using ?    Which version of Word ?

try unchecking the shooter option,  close ecco,  re-open and check the shooter option.
