Data Migration revisited : Solving Tally Data Migration problems

Tally users who are shifting form older versions to newer version are facing problems while migrating data. In some cases data is not migrated successfully. It is unfortunate with me that when ever i have tried to migrate data it has always finished successfully. Let me share some tips regarding data migrations from one version to another.

Migrating from Tally 4.5 to Tally 5.4, 6.3 or 7.2 The process has been discussed in my earlier post on Data Migration from Tally 4.5 to Tally 7.2. You can download this utility from the download section of the site on the right hand panel. Few things should be taken care.

  • Be sure to extract the zip file in tally 4.5 folder.
  • Edit the setting in .ini file regarding path of data.

After conversion you would find folder names 001 or so according to companies you have converted. These companies are workable in tally 5.4 or Tally 6.3 or Tally 7.2. You have to copy paste them in respective data folders.

Migrating from Tally 7.2 to Tally 9

Migration tool which comes with tally 9 has to be used for this purpose. It is also available on the right hand side bas under download section. Few things have to be taken care here also:-

  • Migration tool works with original license version. First it check the license file and then proceeds.
  • You can migrate from backup taken in Tally 7.2.
  • In case of unsuccessful attempt or error message in migration process you can check migration.err file which is created in same folder after migration process ends
  • migration.log files can also be seen for details of migration process.
  • win 98 can cause you some problem while migrating so xp or xp home is better

It is really very important to do it from Backup data of tally 7.2.

In case you do it directly from data folder of tally 7.2 there may be some mistakes.

Of course I did the lazy way, directly from 7.2 data folder and TDS did not function does not matter on any number of support calls I made.

Mr. Janak
First try to rewrite the company in tally 7.2 by pressing Ctrl+Alt+R at company selection menu.
Then again try to migrate. while migrating insure that tally9 is licensed otherwise it would not migrate
