Some members have figured out how to manipulate Ecco’s program structure, and are able to enhance the use of EccoPro with the help of some program extensions in areas never thought of before. If you are interested in additional features of EccoPro please visit our new site at

Thanks to the Ecco extensions, the modified auto assign idea injected something new - Ecco has become an item-by-item power text parser. Ecco can take a set of data, and item by item, locate/analyze/group/distill the data into discrete groups with calculated values for each item. Thus, for example, you can flag all credit card charges over a certain amount, automatically sort credit charges by location, track by date of transaction (using ecco calendar), etc. You can even dump large text blocks (one per item, up to 32k) and auto perform statistics, assigning it to folders based on content, etc.
