Formatting a number column

 

A simple question -- is it possible to format a number column so that all values (including, particularly, those that are whole numbers) are shown to 1 decimal place? 

I also notice that, even if formatted to 2 decimal places by the standard format '0.00', whole numbers (eg, 84) are shown with no decimal places (ie, 84 not 84.00) although other numbers (eg, 83.7) are formatted correctly (ie, 83.70).  Is there a way to fix it so that all numbers are shown to 2 decimal places as specified?

Re: [ecco_pro] Re: FW: How to change text for one recurring appointment?

 

Thanks, r634718 -- I think you're right.  On further testing, I've found that the dialog box only appears if you change the date or time of an event or if you try to delete it.  Unfortunately, it does not appear (for me) when you change the text -- and, yes, that is what I would like it to do.  For example, I have an untimed daily recurring appointment where the text is "Weather" and at the end of day I'd like to change that text (for that day only) to say something about that day's weather.

Does anyone have a workaround for this type of text change?  I'm thinking I'll just have to forget the recurrence feature and copy the item forward for every day to, for example, the end of the month.

To get this dialog to appear, I think you have to change the date or time of the selected event.  I don't believe changing the text will generate this dialog because as I explained above I don't think you can use it for this.  Try, for example, changing the start and end time of one instance of a recurring item and it should trigger this dialog.  But again, I don't think that is what you are after as AFIK you can't do it with the text of the item, only dates and times.


***Please let me know if I am wrong about the item text part because I would love to be able to do this myself if it is possible somehow!  But AFIK I don't think it is.

Re: FW: How to change text for one recurring appointment?

 

That's great, Luther, although I don't seem to be able to get all the way yet.  I usually work in the Week Calendar View and the R-click Modify.... option only seems to appear in the Month Calendar View.  That's not a problem -- I can easily switch views when I need the Modify.... option.

More importantly, however, I do not get the Change Recurring Event? dialog box when I click OK in the Modify.... box.  I've tried several types of changes but it just never appears.  What do others see?  Does anyone know what makes that second dialog box appear or not appear?  I'm using Ecco 4.01, EccoExt v4.6.6.1 on Windows 8.1 64-bit.

Perhaps I did not understand your posting because as far as I know, any time one right clicks on a recurring item in the ECCO calendar and selects "modify" it is possible to alter any element of that appointment's characteristics and as soon as you click "OK" you are asked (as in the below screen shot) if you want the change to apply to the "selected occurrence", "Future recurrences only" or "All recurrences".

 

It would seem that this feature should fit the bill.

After a long period of not using the Ecco Calendar (low memory problem), I'm just re-learning what I used to know well!

One of the things that used to annoy me was that the text of one recurring Appointment cannot be changed without also changing all the other recurrences.  Has any workaround been developed for that?  I hesitate to say this, but my wife has just pointed out that it can be done in Outlook, which gives you the option of a change being made for all recurrences or for this one only.

Recommendation

 

Over a year ago I joined up with you and purchased "something" to add to
Ecco to run on my XP machine. For reasons too complicated to explain, I
never really followed up with using Ecco.

I have now upgraded my computer to W7 and I have a new Android phone
with Verizon 4G service.

I have not installed Ecco on the W7 HD, but I still have the XP HD as a
secondary drive.

Is it possible for you to check my records of what I bought so you can
tell me what I need to do to get a fully functioning Ecco on my W7
machine, synched with my Android.

I realize this request is probably a PITA, so if you don't have time to
respond, I understand.

I was one of the original Ecco users, switching over from PackRat in
disgust. I still have an unopened PackRat 5 software purchase!!!

Sigh

How to synchronize unlimited Ecco items to your Android device

 

        

How to synchronize unlimited Ecco Notepad items to your Android device

Picture 1
Picture 2

To support the EccoPro community over the last 17 years, we were always faced with adjusting our beloved software to new operating systems and with changes to all kind of handheld devices, necessary to take our information on the road. It started with the original Palm Pilot when Palm continued with webOS and the Palm Pre.

With the appearance of iPhones and Androids, HP, which just had purchased Palm decided to curtail webOS developers and the Palm Pre ended up in the junkyard of recyclers. HP’s webOS began with a fanfare but folded. The convenience of carrying our Ecco data was lost until last year when we with the help of our members published the Ecco Edition of MyPhoneExplorer.

Without the Ecco Source Code the development was not an easy task. An Ecco type application for Android or the iPhone was out of the question. We were guided by the original Ecco synchronization of the Palm Desktop which sadly had built-in limitations by displaying only a limited amount of Ecco Subitems on Palm Devices.

We knew native Android applications are not designed with Ecco's Subitem structure in mind. Ecco's most favorite feature "Outlining" could not be displayed. We had to stick with the original four Palm Synchronization Modules Phonebook (Contacts), Calendar, Tasks and Memos (Notes). To get more use of Memos or Notes I will show you here how to overcome TLI (Top Level Item) and Subitem limitations.



Picture 3

Open the Ecco "Folder Window". The original Palm Synchronization created three new folders under "New Columns", "Pilot Archive" (Folder Type: CheckMark), "Pilot No Notes" (Folder Type: CheckMark) and "Pilot Memos" (Folder Type: Pop-Up List). Let us change the name of the "Call Status" Folder (Folder Type: CheckMark, Picture 3) to "Action" and move/create three new folders with the names above and the same properties as Sub folders into the "Action" folder (see Picture 4).


Picture 4

In my example I changed the original "date" folders under "Action" -> "Call Back", "Left Msg" and "Last Call" to "Calls", "Re-call", "Reminders" and "Follow-ups". If you have not done so, I prefer the Tickler section on top, click Calendar -> Show Tickler Section on Top. If Columns don't show click on Column -> Show Columns.



Picture 5

Now click on Column -> Insert Column -> "Existing Column or Folder" and scroll down to click the "Action" folder (see Picture 5). Right-click the "Action" Column header -> Properties and choose "For each Item, cell displays: Sub Folders of "Action" that contain Item". In the Folder Window right-click "Pilot Memos" -> Properties and add "Pop-up values" like Business, Personal, Private or any of your choice. In MyPhoneExplorer on your Desktop click on File -> Settings -> Sync -> Notes (Sync with "Ecco") -> Advanced and under your Ecco Database choose the Folder "Pilot Memos" (see Picture 6).


Picture 6

Your Android phone's client of MyPhoneExplorer  offers you two beautiful Widgets, MPE Tasks and MPE Notes (see Picture 1). If you click the "Action" column next to any entry in Ecco's Calendar or in any Notepad and choose "Pilot Memos" (plus a choice of Pop-Up Value) you have a simple way to move TLIs and Subitems to your Android device. If used the next MyPhoneExplorer synchronization will transfer an unlimited amount of your TLIs and Subitems to MPE Notes. Tap the MPE Notes Widget and it will show you all Notes with the latest Note on top (see Picture 2).

You might also add the column "Pilot Memos" to the folder "Pilot Memos" (see Picture 7). It will show all your Pop-Up Values related to separate entries (see picture 7). Additionally, you might sort the column "Pilot Memos" to accommodate different projects.

Picture 7 - Pilot Memos Notepad View

Here is a Calendar view with the "Action" column at the right and the Folder Window to the left (Picture 8). To bypass the synchronization to your Android device you might archive your Pilot Memos by just clicking "Pilot Archive" in the "Action" column related to your Calendar entry. Do not forget to adjust your MyPhoneExplorer sync accordingly, don't use "Sync both" choose "Force Ecco -> phone" or the Android item will be synced back to Ecco's folder "Pilot Memos".

Picture 8 - Calendar View

MyPhoneExplorer Features:

  • Adressbook - with direct sync to Ecco, Outlook, GMail, Windows contacts, Thunderbird, Lotus Notes
  • Calendar - with direct sync to Ecco, Outlook, Google, Thunderbird, Windows Calendar, Lotus Notes, and net shared calendars (WebDAV, FTP, local)
  • Synchronize Ecco Tasks and Ecco Notes with MPE Tasks and MPE Notes
  • SMS Messages - Send, Archive, Export, Import Messages of any length
  • Android File Browser with Cache System to minimize Data Transfer, Automatic Photo Synchronization
  • Full backup of your Android device, including Files and Applications
  • and much more. i.e.: Call Lists, Edit Profiles, Control Phone, Memory Status, Phone Monitor

Scrolling on Win 8.1 tablet

 

I have installed Ecco on my Win 8.1 tablet and would like to be able to scroll the pages by touching the screen with my finger, just like native apps for Win 8.1.

Is there a way to do this?

 Thanks!

Help please! A New Twist on the "Low Memory Condition" Problem

 

I have been using Ecco Pro since 1995, and have rarely had any troubles.  Today, suddenly, I am completely unable to use the program, or even to open my data file.  I could really use some help.

My computer is a desktop with a very fast, modern Intel processor and 16GB of memory and Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.  I installed Ecco Pro about 2 years ago on this machine using the EccoPro 64 - Installation.msi from Compusol.  I am not using any of the add-on tools ("Ecco extension," etc.); it's just plain old vanilla EccoPro 64 bit.

I suspect the problem was caused by my having to do a "hard restart" earlier today (the computer appeared to b e stuck and would not go fully into sleep mode, so I powered it down without doing a proper shutdown).  Ever since then, I cannot fully open the file.

Following the hard restart, when I tried to reopen EccoPro, the program opened, and the dialogue box where I enter my file password appeared.  Normally, when I enter the password and click "OK," the file opens right up.  Instead, however, I got the message "Please Note . . . Unable to complete command, low memory condition detected." I have reviewed many years of posts to the EccoPro group about this, and I know that many others have had the same error message, and the problem for them was that they had reached one of EccoPro's memory limits.  In all of those previous p osts that I reviewed, however, this error message appeared when the user tried to add another appointment, or add something to a folder, not when simply opening their file.  It seems that, for them, deleting some appointments, or deleting some other items from a folder, would typically solve the problem.  My issue did not arise when trying to add something to a folder, but simply just trying to open my data file, and it happened right after my hard restart.  And, unlike others who can simply delete some items, I can't even OPEN my data file to delete anything.

At first, I thought it was no big deal; I figured that the hard restart had simply corrupted my active EccoPro data file, since Ecco was running and my data file was open at the time of the hard restart.  I am a backup fanatic, and I have daily network backups going back weeks.  But none of the backups work either!  I tried my backup from yesterday; from the day before yesterday, the day before that; I tried one from three weeks ago; they all have the same problem, and yet all of them were working fine at the time of the backups.  I then uninstalled and reinstalled Ecco, thinking it was a corruption with the installation of the program itself, but that didn't work.  I found and deleted my ecco.cfx, ecco.fdb, and ecco.alm files from the C:\Users\[MyName]\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Windows folder, but that didn't do anything either.  I ran CheckDisk on my C drive (an SSD, where the program is installed) and my D drive (a second SSD, where my data files are), to see if it was a problem with my disks, but no problems were found.

I even did a new installation of EccoPro on a spare Windows 7 laptop, and tried to use my backup data file from 3 weeks ago, but I got the same error message. How can that be???????

I have spent the last 2 hours trying virtually everything, reading old posts from this list, etc., but nothing works.  Since I have backups that worked fine at the time I backed them up, and now none of them work, it seems to me that the Database – Recover tool is not the solution, right?

Can someone tell me what I am missing?  It's probably obvious, but I can't think of it.  My Ecco calendar and phonebook are critical to me and I can't see either of them.

Thanks for any help,

Jim

Re: [eccopro] Re: Low memory condition

 

Did you compact your file after deleting the data? Ecco leaves space where the data was.

After joining the EccoPro Support group, receiving a number of helpful emails and following most of the advice given, I tried the route of archiving the Ecco file I use constantly (after first backing up or copying multiple copies!).  


This seemed to work as all appointments prior to 1 Jan 2012 disappeared and when I hovered over the Appointments folder the last line read
Item count / Max     3251 / 3246 .  
You may remember that this previously read in the region of 16000 but after deleting quite a few appointments it came down to 14369 / 14364 .

With great relief and even some excitement, I tried entering a new appointment for next week ... and the dreaded 39;Unable to complete command, low memory condition detected' message appeared!

I've tried opening a completely new (and therefore empty) file and can enter appointments in this.  I suppose I could now start afresh but I'm having difficulty exporting/importing my phone book as I made a few new fields in my old one and this seems to have muddled everything up. In any case the names have appeared with out any of my important subitem notes.

Any advice much appreciated, as usual.
