I can't comment on MAC, but I run the extension every day successfully in my crossover for linux, just by starting the extension program. Sometimes I have to start it twice as it sometimes crashes the first time, but simply starting it again works for me.  Good luck!

I have been using ECCO since 1996. Originally, I bought the stripped-down version named "ECCO Simplicity." Then I changed to ECCO Pro, which I have been using ever since. I'm keeping a Windows XP machine up and running mainly so that I can use ECCO. However, being disgusted with how Microsoft conducts themselves, I have migrated to Linux. I want to try running ECCO under Wine, but am facing difficulty in installing Wine into Mint with the XFCE desktop (as I write this, the main program file cannot be found on the main Wine web site).
 
I have been considering either (a) moving all my data into more current applications that run smoothly in Linux, or (b) moving my antique ECCO into the Linux/Mint environment. So far, the jury is still out. (I was able to install Wine very neatly into a Fedora installation from Fedora's own program repository, but will probably be abandoning Fedora for Mint).
 
I understand that ECCO was developed to be a showcase application for a database language. I'd hate to abandon ECCO: in my experience, the program is unique, especially in its open-ended structuring.
 
I have never seen any explanation for what the name "ECCO" stands for. Does anybody know?

Yes, i just started using Crossover on my Mac to run Ecco.  It works pretty well with the 32 bit 4.01 but don’t now how to load the more advanced 64 bit version of Ecco into Crossover.  Would love to have some of those features.
 
I had been using Parellels to run Ecco but this was causing my computer to run hot.  Crossover appears to be much less taxing on the computer resources and so the fan doesn’t run as often if at all.

I've been using it since 2001. Thanks for mentioning that you've been using it since 1995; I thought I was the only one who has been using it for such a long time.

5  the SLANG EXTENSION and Guest Programming / Slang Rules Scripts, Functions, Examples and HOW TO / Having fun with the Color folder
 on: 08/03/18 at 14:23:19 
Started by cjholly | Post by cjholly
I barely understand slang rules, but borrowing from others I came up with a rule that removes color from Done items, turns past due To-Do's orange and current and future To-Do's green, and current and future Appointments with an A: or O: magenta and with HRG: red, and removes color from past hearings and appointments.
 
++:!+-MN:          
iff(gfv('Done') > 0, "",          
iff(gfv("To-Do's") > 0, (iff(gfv("To-Do's") < TODAY, 0x0099FF, 0xFF0000)),          
iff(gfv("Appointments") > 0,  
     (iff(gfv("Appointments")>=TODAY&&(left(itt,2)=="A:"||left(itt,2)=="O:"),0xFF00FF
,
           (iff(gfv("Appointments")>=TODAY&&left(itt,2)=="HR",0xFF,
"")))),      
"")))        
:          
[To-Do's] or [Appointments] or [Done]
 
 
I cannot remember where the skeleton of the above came from, and I am sure it is not the most elegant way to do it, but for now, I am just glad I got it to work without bother my fellow eccolytes overmuch.  --Chris Holly

Is this happening on W10 for anyone?

I've successfully installed it on Win 10 and it is working fine. No problem with printing as well. If you face any problem, try the "Compatibility Mode" in Properties.

thank you but, I need a easy way to do it as it is not something complicated I just need to add selected contacts' email address in the to: column.
 
it will be too complicated if I do export and choose 'fields' and copy and paste into email to: header.
 
is it possible to copy selcted items's field value in ecco ?
 
b.regards

You can select items & manually export information into file,  then use file to do a manual mail merge with word.

File >Database > Export
