Data migration from Tally 4.5 to Tally 7.2

We all know that to convert tally data from 7.2 to 8.1 Tally is providing a data migration utility with Tally 8.1. You can get more details about migrating Data in my previous post How to migrate Data from Tally 7.2 to Tally 8.1. or Get the FAQ's on data migration.

But what if you have data in Tally 4.5 and you want to convert it to Tally 7.2 or 8.1. For this first of all you have to convert the data into initial 5.4 format from where it can be migrated to Tally 8.1. 

A free utility is available on Tally's Site which would convert data from Tally 4.5 to Tally 7.2 . It is called Convert45to72.exe .You can get this utility Here from Tally Solutions's Site.

Simply unzip the file. You would find three files.
WCVTALLY.EXE
TW45250.DLL
CNVTALLY.DAT

Copy these files to directory of Tally 4.5.
Now run the utility by clicking on file WCVTALLY.exe  and convert the companies one by one. After converting all companies you would see different folders are created . Copy these folders to the directory where your Tally 7.2 is installed. Open Tally 7.2 and rewrite the companies you want to open in Tally7.2. Wollah !!! the process is complete.

Before migrating data make sure to take backups of files. so that in case of data corruption you can recover it.
These notes can help you for grater details

To convert tally 4.5 first you have to convert it in 5.4 version. the file is in right hand menu under download section.
After conversion put the data folder in tally 7.2 folder.
While opening the file a message to rewrite company would appear. Re write the company and data is converted

Hi...The readme.txt in the zip file says I need to copy CNVTALLY.DAT. but I dont see that file in the zip. Thanks in advance for your help

Anonymous said...

Considering missing cnvtally.dat file

Complete solution is given on:
http://www.tallysolutions.com/tallycoin/support/supportdatamigr.shtml

If you just want the file it is on:
http://www.tally.co.in/Convert45to72.exe

First is conversion to ver 5 and then to upper versions. (second conversion is done through tally 7.2 etc)

PS
Thanks for a nice blog!
