How to Migrate Data from Tally 7.2 to Tally 8.1

The Process of Migrating data from Tally 7.2 to 8.2 is very simple. However it takes can take a lot of time if the existing company is having big data. Before converting data you should take backup of your existing data.
  • To start with first of all download tally from tally's site.
  • Run Install.exe in a separate folder tally8.1. Now activate the license of Tally 8.1. To Migrate data from 7.2 to 8.1 it is necessary to have an activated version of 8.1.
  • Go to Tally 8.1 folder and locate a file migration tool.
  • Start the tool by specifying the location of Tallt7.2 data which would be in c:\tally\data folder where your 7.2 version was installed.
  • Select a company and migrate. After whole process has ended it would make another fold in same location but with different name.
  • You can identify the folder easily as it would contain 4 numbers. e.g. Your existing folder would be 001 and new folder would be 0001.
  • Copy paste this newly created folder in c:\tally8.1\data and run tally.
You would see the new converted data.
