Learning Tally in Three Steps; Step Two: Entering Vouchers

This is the second part of my basic Tutorials on Tally. As we have earlier discussed in Part first that activities on Tally softwares can be divided in three main parts i.e. Creating masters, entering vouchers and seeing the reports. Creating masters has been discussed in great length in Step One, now lets know how vouchers are filled. What ever transactions are done in any business, they are recorded in form of vouchers. This is the main entry which is done by operators. Based on the details provided while entering the voucher and accuracy maintained the reports present true pictures.

Entering Vouchers

Next Basic step in working on Tally is to enter vouchers. Mainly we enter Receipts, Payment, Sales, Purchase, Journal and contra vouchers.

Here are some video Tutorials about Passing vouchers by svtution.

Sales Entry

Another Tutorial for ledger entries

The more of Tally one uses in its business, the more complex its vouchers becomes. In the final and Third step I would discuss viewing reports.

Learning Tally in Three Steps: Step One Creating Masters

This article is for beginners of Tally software. Readers who have mailed me that they want to learn Tally from the starting can find this post helpful. I have earlier posted getting started in Tally. which has rich list of resources from where anybody can start learning Tally. Now is the next step forward the first lesson in Tally. Before that let me give a brief idea of what we do in Tally and how we use this software. This First part of three step process.

How we work in Tally.
As we all know Tally is an accounting software, basic activity in Tally is to record our transactions. But before recording we have to do some master creations. After that we can enter transactions using those masters. These masters are ledgers , items, units and groups etc. After that we can see the reports on the basis of vouchers entered. So the basic tally activity can be divided into three parts viz.

Creation of masters,
Voucher entry and
Viewing Reports.

Creation of Masters
The first step even before learning creation of masters is creation of Company. To start working in Tally we have to create a company. You can learn step by step how to create company in Tally.ERP 9 from this blog post. For Tally 7.2 guidelines on how to create company can be found on this article with screen shots.

One Short video is also available which tries to teach How to create a company.

Now we have to create masters. The ledgers, the groups if needed to define particular type of ledger to group them , the items if we are keeping inventory and the Units etc Here is the list of tutorials to create these masters.

How to create a Stock Group ( Where you can classify different Items)

In Step Two we would learn How to create vouchers. So Keep Watching.

Need Older Versions of Tally : Here is the list

Few ApniTally readers have requested for older versions of Tally. They are either stuck to a particular release and cannot upgrade due to some technical problems or perhaps they dont know about the free upgrade facility of Tally. Some times there are several other reason also which i would discuss here. What ever may be the reason I have tried to answer this problem. For them i have made download section in my site. You can see it on the right hand pane of the site.

The speed of Tally providing updates is fast and there are many updates available. In almost 15 days new release of Tally is available on the site with some new features. So its not possible to keep track of all updates on my blog but major release are present there.

Why we got stuck at a release?
I have seen in my customers and ApniTally readers also that once they have bought Tally they seldom upgrade it. They only upgrade when they are either stuck by some problem which have been addressed by Tally in higher version or got their computer format and they don't have the last installer with them. In that case they just go to the web and download the latest version available. Every user tries to play safe and don't want to change its Tally unless and until it is necessary to do or done by someone else.
But the question of particular release is still there. Sometimes TDL doesn't allow upgraded versions.as it gets stuck with changes in release. Some time statutory version requirements doesn't allow to change to new releases. Some times upgraded versions are not that much stable then earlier versions( It happened in case of Tally9). And last but not the least some times fear of paying extra cost or reluctance to pay extra money on new features lets users bind to one release.
What ever may be the reason lets download major releases and version of your choice.

Download Tally.ERP 9

Download Tally9

Download Tally 7.2

I hope no major release is left. For older stat versions check downland Tally section on right hand side.

My Favourites : Now in Tally.ERP 9 also

In my earlier post I have discussed one exciting feature which is coming up in future. This feature is Income Tax calculation for individuals. Today I am going to discuss another exciting feature which is coming in Tally.ERP 9 rel 3 and this feature is of My favourites. If browsers can have it then why not Tally.

My Favourites
In rel 3 of Tally.ERP 9 every user would get an option to save his choices of viewing the reports. This feature can be assigned too any number of users. In an organisation different people play different roles. This can be dependent on their roles. Accounts manager want to see balance sheet in a different manner whereas owner wants to see it in a different manner. The store keeper wants inventory reports in age wise where as purchase manager may need inventory in a different style. Every time settings would be changed for same report. This can be related to different views of Balance sheets which you prefer or the stock report view you want. These views can be saved for later use. Now every user would be able to save his view.

According to Tally,
"With Tally.ERP 9, you can always go into My Favourites menu and see the report in a pre-defined view. You can also set as many Favourites as you require, and view them every time without re-configuring. Whether it is various exceptions reports or just a list of Outstandings, My Favourites is your simple solution for personal settings."

Key Benefits
Main benefits which user is going to get is that his unique settings would be getting stored irrespective of how many users use same computer or same Tally.
Second Major benefit is saving of time.
