Upgrading from prior versions of Tally.ERP 9, Tally 9,
Tally 8.1, and earlier versions
Migrating to Tally.ERP 9 from any prior version of Tally
is simple - these tools are either built into the
product itself or available as migration tools that are
installed along with the product.
Typically, there will be no need to make any changes to
the data post migration - and the transition time could
be just minutes - a few hours at most.
Getting a bit more specific, Tally.ERP 9 will migrate
all data from Tally 7.2 onwards, without any assistance.
If you have an older version (6.3, 5.4 and so on) you
will need to bring your data to 7.2 and then migrate
(our Sales & Support team will be able to help you). In
any case these tools are available at no extra cost.
In a few cases you might have customised or extended
Tally – this would have been done with one or more TDL's,
most likely built by one of our partners. Tally.ERP 9
comes with a TDL conversion tool that will attempt to
convert such TDL's. Note, the word 'attempt' – since
both the product and the TDL language evolve, there is a
small possibility that the conversion may not succeed.
In such cases you would need to contact the author of
the customisation and make the necessary changes to the
TDL. We therefore recommend that where customisations
exist, there be a simple pilot undertaken to assess
Account Management is now a major feature available in
Tally.ERP 9. As part of the 'Control Centre', you have a
powerful way of managing your deployments. Included is
serial number management.
